Copper ChainMaille Earrings
“Euro 4-1 Diamond Weave”
Size: 2 “ht x 5/8″wide
This is a pair of handmade “Euro 4-1 Diamond Weave” Copper ChainMaille Earrings Jewelry. What does the 4-1 means – each ring goes through 4 rings before it is closed.The Art of ChainMaille weaving has been a passion for me for several years now. It is a Labor of love.
Each piece has its own story and the artist becomes part of the finished 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.
These Copper earrings starts with copper 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. It amazes me at all the different designs you can do with just round wire.
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.
Why Buy from Me?
Quality and your Satisfaction is my goal!
Finishing my copper chainmaille 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 jewelry have been lacquer twice to help keep tarnish down and customers happy!
