There are two main problems that occur typically, one is the jump ring opens and part of the clasp gets lost and the other one is the spring clasp gets broken and no longer closes correctly.


You don’t have to throw the pendant, you would just fix it and you need no technical skills to do that. You just need a small iron pincer to remove the broken clasp.


Find the little gap in the necklace that follows right the clasp. Then grab the clasp, with the pincer and bend the ring with your fingers to remove the clasp. 


For both the problems, the solution is the same. You will need to replace the broken clasp with a new one.

Restring A Broken Necklace


You will first need to separate the last chaining on your chain necklace where the break started. 


All chain necklaces start as wire, so pliers are a good way to break this further apart without damaging the actual integrity of the necklace.

You can close the chainring that you've been working with gently using the pliers and bend it so that it doesn't open on its own. You can use the same method to link the last chainring with the main one.
