What is a Popcorn Chain?
Popcorn chains can be worn with pendants attached but often they are decorative enough, and can be wide enough, to be worn as a stand-alone necklace or bracelet.
A more solid, tightly-woven popcorn chain can form a more solid “tube” and makes a perfect bangle.
Are Popcorn Chains Any Good?
The advantages of popcorn chains are that they are lightweight, beautifully decorative and can be worn as a stand-alone item of jewellery. They can also be fashioned into larger and wider necklaces and bracelets or bangles without adding a lot of weight, making them easier to wear.
Their disadvantage is that they may not be as strong as a solid-linked chain.
