I am about to place an order that includes an item that is actually a series of small shapes connected by a thin line. The idea is that I will cut them apart when they arrive and then make them into a bracelet.

I am afraid it will be rejected due to the thin line, so I wanted to ask if this can be done. I've seen not-for-sale rings that look like they're connected, and I figured that's what that person was going to do with them.

If there's some specific way I should accomplish this, just tell me.

Thank you!

I assume this is because you plan on doing these in sterling silver, and you don't want to pay for multiple parts.
If this is the case, it will probably be rejected because it would be nearly impossible to handle this part while in the wax stage. It would be better to arrange them in a circle, and increasing the thickness of the connecting wire. The extra cost of material is negligible compared to the start-up cost. You might also consider a double wire.
If you want to do these in one of the plastics there is no need for the connecting wire, just send them as multiple pieces.

I was actually thinking of stainless steel.

Stainless allows multiple parts, there is a maximum but it is ambigous. I know of others printing six parts per stainless file. So remove the wires and go for it!
