Customer review

Really pretty chain. I used it for a pendant that had a patina.

Sterling Silver Satellite Chain

One of our newest chains at Kernowcraft is the satellite chain, perfect for dainty designs and offering something a little more modern.

The chain has tiny silver beads evenly spaced along the chain - it’s a design that we have been seeing more and more of in jewellery creations and we’re loving it!

Why not layer it up with another chain and create something really special?

Sterling Silver Bead Chain

This popular ready made chain is popular among both women's and men's jewellery. The bead chain is made from round silver balls and doesn't consist of links like most chains.

Connector bars are used to secure the balls in place along the chain.

This chain is also known as ball or pelline chain.

Sterling Silver Beading Chain

Are you a beader? This beading chain has closely connected links, making it great for stringing beads with small holes that need a bit more strength and durability than using usual thread.
