Chainmaille is an ancient art of weaving together individual rings to create simple and elegant jewellery. I fell in love with the art of chain maille very early on my beading journey. I loved seeing the pattern emerge as I interwove the rings, opening and closing them one at a time. Now I have taken the final step and cut and polish my own rings.
There are 168, 18 guage argentium silver rings in this Full Persian 6 in 1 chainmaille bracelet. It has a lovely heavy feel on the wrist and sits rather like a bangle. I have chosen a hook style sterling silver clasp for this bracelet that links into one of three 16 guage rings. A Thai Hillside Silver flower design charm dangles from the last ring. This serves as a decorative feature but is heavy enough to keep the clasp from moving around to the front of the wrist.
The bracelet measures approx 8mm wide ( 3/8 inches). The length is 20cm (8 inches) to the first ring and would suit a wrist size of approx 17cm (7 inches). Please let me know your wrist size in cm or inches by measuring it with a tape measure or a narrow width of paper then measuring it on a ruler. I will then add or subtract the required amount for a perfect fit.
All jewellery items come to you carefully gift-wrapped ready for giving or as a special treat for yourself.
I hope you enjoy wearing this piece of RiverGum Jewellery as much as I have enjoyed creating it.

*******ABOUT ARGENTIUM SILVER******
Argentium Silver contains more germanium than traditional alloys and is therefore highly tarnish-resistant. It creates beautifully sparkling jewellery that requires almost no polishing. It has been tested against pollution, perspiration and ultraviolet and received a 100% success rating. Argentium is brighter than platinum, white gold and traditional sterling silver and has a longer lasting shine. It is low maintenance, easy to care for and simple to keep clean. The Argentium I use in my jewellery is purchased from a supplier who guarantees that the product is made from materials recovered/recyclable or made from renewable materials. Or, it means the product was produced by manufacturing processes that employ ecologically sound methods.
