Heart Cadena Question

  1. Ok, this may sound super silly but can the Heart Cadena be "opened" e.g. like the Pesagus or Sailboat Cadenas?

    If yes, how?? Thank you!! ;)
     
  2. Hi j0s1e
    The Heart cadena like the Pegasus or Sailboat, is opened by unscrewing it at the base and then turning it to one side or another.
     
  3. Thanks Sus! But I am looking at my Heart Cadena now and it does not appear that there's anything to un-screw .... am I missing something? I did try "turning" it clockwise/anti-clockwise and nothing ...
     
  4. Jos, look on one side and you will see or feel something thicker. Unscrew this, it may be difficult at first, I had this problem myself. I like this closure better because you will not break a nail, but it probably isn't as safe as the older closure.
     
  5. wait i can open my pegasus?
     
  6. gracekelly, do you mean the thicker part as shown in my attached picture? Thanks!!!

  7. ^Exactly. Sometimes they are impossible to open initially. I know that mine was like that. Take a small piece of rubber or latex glove so you can get a grip on it and turn it. Eventually it will move!
     
  8. I am coming to you gracekelly when I need help!!!

  11. simplyprincess - hee, yes, they are my nails!!! they are actually stick-ons, a friend custom makes them for me and I stick them on myself - using a special nail tape and nail glue - stays on for 2-3 weeks :smile: PM me if you are interested to find out more!!

  14. Hurray!!! I'm so happy you did it. Mine was so bad I nearly took it back to the boutique! Finally on my last try it opened.

    This is turning out to be my favorite cadena because it lays flat against the bag when you hang it from the clochette. I also figured out a way to wear it around my neck, not to mention the fact that I am a real sucker for hearts LOL!

    BTW Kellybag, my claim to fame in my office is that I am the fix-it person. Centrifuges, electric exam tables, light fixtures (that was yesterday) the list just goes on and on. Inbetween fixing things, I get some real work done! HA HA!
     
  15. gracekelly, thank you! hehehehe, wow! yours must have been real tight!!!

    yes, isn't it a cute cadena?? any pics of how you are using it? do show pics if you are using it as a necklace!
