Do you dare to be different? This is not your traditional jewelry that everyone wears. This bracelet was created using the ancient Art of ChainMaille Weaving . It dates as far back as 2700 years. The Art of weaving ChainMaille has been a long time passion. I am driven, there is always a new design to do. This ChainMaille Bracelet “Butterfly Weave” is a Labor of love. This is definitely a Unique Keepsake to be handed down. If you look closely at this design each element is a small butterfly and I alternate between 14kt Gold Fill and Sterling Silver.
The artist breathes life into the wire and the wire starts its journey from a boring piece of wire to becoming this beautiful ChainMaille Bracelet. Each piece has its own story and the artist becomes part of it.Sometimes after you create a piece you just go “wow”. It is a very cool feeling to be part of the process. Each piece is unique to itself the 1st time and the fifth time you make it. That is because there is no machine making it. There is always a new design to do. It amazes me at all the different designs you can do with just round wire.
It all starts with taking the wire and coiling it into a spring shape. It is then put into a cutting jig where the spring is cut into hundreds of rings. Each jump ring is then open and weaved its own unique design. ChainMaille is extremely time-consuming. You must be precise for the pattern to hold its beauty and shape. Each pattern that I weave calls for a specific Aspect Ratio with a mathematical relationship between the wire diameter and the inside diameter of the ring. If the jump rings are slightly too big the pattern is sloppy and not professional looking. If the rings are just slightly small you can not weave it.
Why Buy this 14kt Gold Fill & Sterling Silver ChainMaille Bracelet from Me?
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
Finishing to me is just as important as the creating and the weaving. This is where some artist get in a hurry they have spent all their time creating it. Now they just want to get started on the next project. I just do not get in a hurry at the end. I want to make sure the buyer has asmooth snag free keepsake jewelry. I do this by tumbling the piece over a two-day process. I use four different tumbling media’s. 12 hours for each step. I know of no other artist taking this extra step.
