Fold formed silver filled and gold filled chainmaille Byzantine metalwork bracelet

$230.00

Only 1 available


Starting with a sheet of double clad silver fill*, I folded, hammered, and heated it in a process known as fold forming. 4 squares of hammered silver fill are connected together with a chainmaille weave known as Byzantine. The chainmaille links are handmade from 14K gold filled** wire.

The squares have been oxidized to enhance the design. The bracelet clasps with a stainless steel magnetic tube clasp. The silver squares measure 1.25 inches wide and 1 inch high.

You will receive this exact bracelet.

Because the metal is silver fill, you can see the brass layer on the edges of the metal. I believe this adds to the design, which is why I chose to compliment it with the gold.

*Silver filled metal is made by heat bonding a thin layer of sterling silver to a brass core. The ratio of silver to brass by weight is 5%. Silver fill will tarnish just as sterling silver does. It will not turn black, flake off, or scratch off. You can see the brass layer around the outside edges of the metal.

***14K gold-filled wire is made by heat and pressure bonding a thin layer of 14K gold to a brass core. The ratio of gold to brass by weight is 5%. This means that there is an actual layer of gold over the brass instead of a microscopic film as in gold plated jewelry. Gold-filled jewelry does not tarnish.

Your bracelet will arrive packaged in a handmade gift box.
