A chain necklace made up of recycled precious metal links which are not soldered closed, and therefore it falls apart easily. The wearer has to be very careful when putting on or taking off the necklace, and it takes a lot of patience and effort to put the chain back together when it falls apart. This is like a metaphor for climate change – the worse the situation gets the harder it will be to fix. It also reflects how easily everything could collapse and fall into disarray.
