This might be a silly question, but do the chains come in different lengths, or do you change them?
They do come in different lengths, but what I use you buy it, then cut it to the proper size. By cut i mean, if possible you open the chain, then reattach with pliers. I hope that make a little sense!

If you're shopping online look for the word unsoldered chain or links so you can separate a long chain into smaller bracelet sized ones. You can usually get 3 ft. of chain for the price of one specific sized soldered one.

Thank you so much!  Is there an online store where you usually buy chains? Would Michael's have them?

Michaels has chains, you can also buy them from many websites. check this thread because others, as well as myself have added some of our favorite sites for beads and charms and most of these also sell the chains. as for what size, i would say you would want larger chain for heaver projects, and i believe the loaded charm bracelet would be on the heavy side. I get mine at Hobby Lobby, i don't know if you have one of those but I know Michaels and Joann carry them as well as i shop at all three often (too often probably)

Michaels, ACMoore or JoAnn's and even some Wal-Mart's carry chain with un-soldered links. Um, etsy is a really good place to buy chain, I believe that a lot of the chain at fusionbeads.com and artbeads.com is soldered. Just be careful that whatever you get is the kind that has the open links.
