For months, I had a tiny knot in the chain of this necklace. Is there anything more frustrating? I picked at it with a straight pin for hours with no success. Finally, I thought to search the internet for some assistance. I found it. Use oil to loosen up the knot. Baby oil and any type of cooking oil are said to work equally well. I went with canola oil since it was at the front of my pantry.
Lay the necklace on a flat surface. Provide a small pool of oil for the knot to sit in and then use two straight pins to unknot the chain. I had it done within a minute flat. Use a cloth to wipe the excess oil off the necklace and the flat surface. Triumph! Necklace restored. Let me know if you get a chance to try it out!
