ChainMaille Copper Earrings
“Japanese Weave Small”
Size: 1 1/4 “ht x 3/8 “wide
This is a pair of handmade “Japanese Weave” ChainMaille Copper Earrings.The Art of ChainMaille weaving has been a passion for several years now. It is a Labor of love. Each piece has its own story, the artist becomes part of the jewelry. It is a very cool feeling to be part of that 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 that I want to do.
It all starts with taking copper 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 pattern is sloppy and not professional looking. If the rings are just slightly small you can not weave it.
Why Buy from Me?
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
Finishing my chainmaille copper earrings 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 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.
All Copper earrings have been lacquer twice to help keep tarnish down!

Ear wires are made from Niobium which is a hypoallergenic material that is great to use in jewelry designs because it is safe for anyone to wear, especially those with metal allergies. Niobium has greater strength than sterling silver.
