Cut to Length

Butterfly pendant with carnelian beads.
I have a started experimenting with chain and semiprecious beads to set of my polymer clay work. I like the look of beads spaced out with chain.

I was having trouble cutting fine chain to bits of exactly the same length but I came up with this solution. If the chain is suspended from a wire or rod it is easy to see just where to cut. I might even try to cut more than one strand at the same time.

This works for me but if there is a better way I would like to trying it. Any suggestions?
