The Bike Chain is a variation on the Byzantine weave, which is also known as Olivia Byzantine. However, it does remind me of a bicycle chain (especially the bracelet version), hence the name. These cute little Bike Chains are handcrafted from 20 gauge, sterling silver jump rings. The silver has been oxidized with liver of sulfur to make the design of the weave stand out. A faceted olive green vasonite rondel hangs from the sterling silver ear wire and a faceted vasonite teardrop hangs at the bottom of the earring.
These earrings are surprisingly lightweight. They are 1 3/4" (45mm) long from the top of the ear wire to the bottom of the citrine drop, and are just over 1/2" (14mm) at their widest point.
I make all of my own jump rings and tumble polish all of my finished pieces to a brilliant shine.
