Classic "Byzantine ChainMaille Weave"
18 Gage Sizes 6 1/2" up
Custom Fitted for Your Wrist
Most Popular Wire Size
This Sterling Bracelet "Byzantine ChainMaille Weave" is a Labor of love. This has been my most popular Sterling Bracelet over the years. This is a classic definitely a One of a Kind Keepsake to be handed down. It is unique. This is done in several different wire sizes so the thickness of the sterling bracelet changes. The higher the gage the smaller diameter of the bracelet.
The artist breathes life into the wire and the wire starts its journey from a boring piece of wire to becoming this beautiful sterling silver Byzantine 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 this 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 then 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 into 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 Byzantine pattern is sloppy and not professional looking. If the rings are just slightly too small it will not weave.
