I had a cunning thought. I had trouble putting on my necklace this morning. I changed over my clasps to lobster claws a while back, which are easier for me to handle. However, the link to clip it to was too small (I actually managed to attach the necklace to my hair at one point- ow! It really is getting long…) I took a spare hair elastic, looped it through the small link, and attached the clasp to that. Viola! Much easier to handle and more comfortable to wear.
