I made these wonderful Chainmaille earrings using an ancient pattern by the name of Byzantine.

These are no normal Byzantine earrings though: I used three short sections of chain and looped them through the perfect sized ring to let them hang and dance with your every motion.

The pattern Byzantine was one of the first Chainmaille patterns invented, its origins are not known but it dates back to somewhere near 300 BC which is pretty amazing. Wearing a set of Byzantine earrings is like wearing a piece of history.

HOW I MADE THEM: I made this pair of earrings using essentially the same process as Chainmaille' originators did 1,300 years ago. I start out with raw wire, then I form and cut each link by hand. Once I've carefully created my links, I build each one of my creations by hand one link at a time, using two pairs of pliers and a boatload of couch-hours.

WHAT ARE THEY MADE FROM?: I made these earrings from my thin 20 gauge Stainless Steel, Silvered Enameled Copper to add the color, and Nickel-Free Surgical Steel for the hooks.

PACKAGING & SHIPPING: These earrings will arrive promptly, packaged in a quality padded mailer. When you open it up you'll find them neatly resting in one of my beautifully hand-stamped jewelry boxes. Wether you're giving these earrings as a gift or treating yourself, you'll love the way I present my work.
