Cheap chain

I'm always on the lookout for useful bits and pieces for my models. Yesterday I ended up in Primark, and amongst their jewellery I found this piece for £4...

It had three dangly bits - I have disassembled one already - each with ten 3½ inch long lengths of 15 link-per-inch chain. The chain is fairly soft and thin, so it's very easy to combine a couple of lengths if you need to; I joined them up into two- and three-section lengths with a pair of needle-nose pliers. 35" per tassle, three tassles - by my reckoning, that's almost 9 feet of fine chain for under 50p per foot... bargain.
