I had about four people in line, wanting to purchase the pendant. And, here's what's SO funny. When I asked the first person in line if she wanted leather or chain she said "neither." She wanted to buy the pendant and make her own chain, so I didn't even have to worry about it! And, since make end caps and clasps is SO labor intensive I was actually quite relieved not to have to do that. Is that ironic? I'm not really sure.
