Handmade Fine Silver Loop-in-Loop Bracelet with Moon-Agate Cabochons; such chains are also known as Etruscan and Roman Chains.

This One-of-a-kind, Fine Silver, Single-Double Chain Bangle Bracelet was hand-fabricated by me. It features two "Moon Agates," one in the middle, and the other as a clasp; this type clasp was developed by me for some of my bracelets.

"Moon Agates" is in quotes above, because, while they look like Moon Stones, Moon Stones are Feldspar, and it was determined that this is an agate-type stone, probably primarily based on hardness, (See below for the chain fabrication process.).

The Bracelet is 7-1/2", and is made with 22 ga. Fine Silver wire. The chain ending hand-fabricated, by me, cups, clasp and gemstone settings are Sterling Silver. The clasp is one which I developed for some of my bracelets.

Single-Double chains are made on a base of two loops, each new loop is passed through the previous loop under it, (this is why it is called a loop-in-loop chain, and dates back to ancient times) and is called, by some, "an Etruscan Chain." There are many variations, some of which you will see, if you check back to my site from time-to-time.

Fabrication Process: I start out with Fine (pure) silver wire, (in this case, 22 ga.) and form it into rings. The rings are fused with a torch, which means the two cut ends are melted together. The rings are then stretched into a long oval, if they are of a sufficiently good quality joining. If the loops have not broken at this point, they are added to a collection for the piece to be made. When enough loops have been made for an item, one can begin, after having done whatever needs to be done in order to sit for a good period undisturbed. It is best to complete whatever length chain you need at one sitting.
