Does anyone know of a reliable jeweler on public transportation who is willing to add a few links to two sterling silver bracelets, as well as to an unusual, but lovely stainless steel and marcasite watch? All three items are vintage. They're a bit small, even for my wrists. Most jewelers seem to work only with gold. The one recommendation I've gotten so far is for someone way out on Long Island in NY.

Thanks!
