just to bump the thread...

got my good art 10aa in the mail today and wow is it great. i was kinda surprised (in a good way) how small the links on the 10aa are. my main concern was the bracelet being chunky in a way that didnt work with what i wear but the 10aa link sizes are just right. definitely comfortable saying the 10aa would work with any sort of wardrobe i've seen on SF

one problem though is i think i messed up measuring my wrist since the length of the chain is a bit long; i can fit my index finger between my wrist and the bracelet pretty easily, and the bracelet itself slides down my wrist/arm a bit. i email GA but i'm anticipating no problem in mailing it back to have a link or two removed.

Would you wear a Jesus chain if you are an atheist? I mean, they do look cool...

Yes. How many people wear chrome hearts that are atheist? Maybe not directly comparable to jesus but within the same vein, I wouldn't think about it too much. Might want to anticipate getting asked about it tho.

I had a link removed from my local jeweler. Not a big deal

I wouldn't.
Same. I’m technically Christian but not practicing and I felt uncomfortable when I had the Jesus pendant from good art. I ended up swapping it for a rosette and shazam

Probably a lot of people wearing chrome hearts arent religious enough to have earned the "right" to wear a cross. You may argue chrome hearts cross isn't truly a cross or not viewed as a religious one, but anecdotally, I wear a buddha pendant even though I have 0 clue who the hell it is or what it signifies.

At a certain point, I truly don't care about what people think about what I choose to wear if I think it is cool/like enough. But again, you may get unwanted attention or assumptions based on wearing a jesus pendant, but if that doesn't make you uncomfortable, go for it.

i think you can wear the cross if you want but it's kinda corny to me unless it has some meaning to you (i guess thinking its cool is meaning enough though hmmm)

a good middle ground maybe is a st christopher pendant since he's the patron saint of travelers..def have seen that worn a ton by secular folks. the burst version looks really good to me!

(as an aside, i will say as someone who had to go to mass 3x a week in the AM before school, any time i see a cross necklace, i get PTSD remembering all the hail marys i had to chant/say in a church with no AC haha)
