ChainMaille Sterling Earrings
Tapered “Byzantine Weave”
1 ½″ Length
A beautiful pair of ChainMaille Handmade Sterling Earrings “Byzantine Tapered Weave”. Created using the ancient ChainMaille art of weaving. The Beauty of Handmade is that each piece is unique the 1st time or the fifth time I make it.
The Art of ChainMaille weaving has been a long time passion. I am driven. These ChainMaille Sterling Copper Earrings set is a Labor of love. It is a keepsake that can be handed down. The artist breathes life into the wire and the wire starts its journey to become these Sterling and or Copper Earrings. Its unique journey starts with the artist and continues with the story of you the owner.

The Process: Tapered Sterling Earrings
What starts as a simple design – all rings are the same size is thrown out the door. The designs starts with 4 different sizes of rings. This gives the earrings the tapered look. 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 pattern is sloppy and not professional looking. If the rings are just slightly small you can not weave it.
Ear wires are made from Sterling Silver NO NICKEL!
