Fold Form copper and 14K gold filled European weave chainmaille metalwork bracelet

$325.00

Only 1 available


A beautiful piece of copper sheet is the focal for this piece. The gold/green/red colors on the focal piece were produced by heating it with a torch. The copper has been sealed with wax to reduce tarnish. The copper focal piece measures 2x1 inches.

The piece is connected to a sheet of 14K gold filled chainmaille. Hand cut gold filled rings were woven in a pattern known as European 4 in 1. A gold filled filligree box clasp finishes the bracelet. A safety chain is attached to the clasp. The bracelet has a nice weighty feel to it but is not overwhelming.

The bracelet is ready to ship in a size 7. It is 1.75 inches wide with the chainmaille. This bracelet fits best when worn with just a bit of slack.

My process:

I use no solder in my pieces. I prefer the ancient art of using just heat and hammer to form my pieces. I use cold connections such as riveting or jump rings to connect the metal together.

Foldforming:

The process of fold forming (which creates the folds in my work) uses only heat and hammer. The folds are made by “folding” the piece, hammering it down, and heating it to open it again. The fold forming process is repeated over and over again until I feel the piece is “done”.

Chainmaille:

My chainmaille is made in much the same manner. The art of chainmaille has been around for centuries. I love that I’m continuing an ancient art. Using only pliers, it's amazing what can be created. Chainmaille, when done with precision and care, will last for years.
