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.

 

Why buy from me?

 Quality and Your Satisfaction is my goal! 

 

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 shapeIt 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.

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 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.
