    I was given a Links of London charm recently, but the charm's only attached to a little silver ring, so it has to be soldered onto the bracelet (and then I can't move it to a different position). All my other charms (Thomas Sabo/Argos/etc) are attached to clips, so I can clip them on and off my bracelet.

    Does anyone know if I can buy just a clip, so that I could solder my Links charm to the clip, and then use it as a normal clip-on charm?

    I hate that Links of London require all their charms to be soldered on. Do you mean buy the little clip part to attach to the charm so you could remove it and put it on as you want? If so I imagine you could find them in Hobbycraft, they have loads of stuff like that.

    you can generally buy one of those little clips from any craft store, attach it to the charm (it has a tiny keyring type thing on it) and hey presto, add it to your bracelet.

    It's probably better to get them soldered on though, it the long run. Mine were always getting caught and breaking/falling off. That is, until I lost my precious charm bracelet last summer I still haven't gotten over it.

    You probably could, but links won't solder it on to a clip because they don't do them, you'd have to find a clip and someone else to do it.

    I think it's because on the links of london sweetie bracelets, they have specific links which are like tiny keyrings, so you don't need the charms to have a clip. You could buy some no solder rings and attach it to the charm and the bracelet that way - you can get them from http://www.azesha.co.uk/ click on no-solder rings.
