Yes, the necklace I am currently wearing had a weak link, so I soldered it closed.

Maybe "neon test light" wasn't the best phrase to describe it. What I meant is this gizmo: Image
This particular type of test light can be found in every toolbox in Hungary, so obviously there's a word for it: fázisceruza ("phase pencil", a wonderful misnomer for a screwdriver that indicates voltage). Apparently it isn't so ubiquitous in the English-speaking world.
