Dare to be different with your jewelry and standout. A handmade “Byzantine ChainMaille Weave” Bronze Necklace. This is far from any traditional jewelry. It was created using the ancient art of ChainMaille weaving that dates as far back as 2700 years. This Bronze Necklaceis definitely a keepsake that you will be able to hand down. It is unique. It a comfortable necklace to wear.
The artist breathes life into the wire and the wire starts its magical journeyfrom a boring piece of wire to becoming this beautiful bronze necklace. Each piece has its own story and the artist becomes part of it. Its unique journey continues with the story of you the owner. It is a very cool feeling to be part of the process.Each piece is unique to itself. That is because there is no machine making it.
It amazes me at all the different designs you can do with just round wire. It starts with taking 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. 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.
What is the difference between 18 gage and 16 gage chains? The photo is actually copper but it show a difference between the 2 weaves. What may be confusing for the customer is that 16 gage you would think is smaller than the 18 gage. But is metal working it does not work this way the smaller the number the larger the size of wire. 18 gage would be a lighter by weight.
Why Buy this Bronze Necklace 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 have learn not get in a hurry at the end. This is where the beauty really shines through. I want to make sure the buyer has a smooth 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. This Bronze Necklace has been lacquer twice to help prevent tarnish!
This Bronze Necklacecan be custom fitted for you. The length can be shorten to best fit you. Photos show a s hook clasp. Can be changed to a copper lobster clasp. S hooks work nicely on necklaces.
