What is chainmaille? According to - http://www.bluebuddhaboutique.com/b3/faq/chainmaille/what-is-chain-maille
Chainmaille (also known as chainmail or simply maille) is typically armor or jewelry made by connecting metal rings to one another. The word maille derives from the French word maille (mesh), which comes from Latin macula (mesh of a net). Creating something out of maille involves a few steps:
o Wrap metal wire around a rod to make a coil.
o Cut the coil, creating individual "jump rings."
o Using pliers, link the rings--one at a time--into a pattern.
Chainmaille is one of the earliest forms of metal armor. The oldest piece of maille armor that can be accurately dated is more than 2,700 years old. It was discovered in the graves of Celtic warriors. Earlier evidence of chainmaille has been found in graves from the 5th century BC in Scythia (an area between Europe and Asia). Although most historical chainmaille is armor, jewelry techniques were also used by cultures as diverse as the Vikings and the ancient Egyptians. It is difficult to trace the history of chainmaille, because much of the "evidence" was destroyed in battle. Many pieces that survive today may have been high-quality pieces passed on from generation to generation (or even stolen from a corpse after a battle). These may or may not be a good sampling of the most common maille used. Read more about the history of chainmaille at Wikipedia.
Maille has become increasingly popular in recent years. Some artists make armor to use in staged battles. Others prefer to create chainmaille jewelry, and still others make sculptures. The versatility of this medium is astounding; artists have created chessboards, belts, dresses, baskets and even sun glass lenses (see closeup)--all out of maille.

Chainmaille can be made from virtually any material that can be formed into a circle. This includes most metals as well nontraditional jewelry materials such as rubber.

Definition: Silver Plate:
silover-plate [sil-ver-pleyt] Show IPA verb (used with object), silover-platoed, silover-platoing. to coat (base metal) with silver, especially by electroplating.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

I consider my work Wearable Art...Miniature Works of Art, are a way to express ones love of things.

At the time this delicate necklace was created I was making earrings using jump rings and beads. I love chainmaille and the intricate patterns created. While playing with the rings that I had out, I soon realized that these two sizes fit neatly inside each other. I started laying out the triangular pattern. All that was left was to connect the rings and form a unit. Once that was accomplished it needed more adornments to make it complete. Hence, the discs were added. This added subtle movement and a complimentary texture to the piece. Black was the most reasonable material for the necklace completion.

Items worn around the neck have been adornments for the human body for centuries. The necklace has many reasons for wearing. Drawn to the enhancement of neck has been a passion for a very long time. Making wearable art for the neck is part of the human nature that makes us unique and passionate for life and individuality. Creating one of a kind wearable art is my passion.

My work starts as an idea then organic growth takes over until the mind screams STOP!

Great shipping, great packaging. I just thought the necklace was going to be more browns and greens and darker. It is a pretty necklace but not what I was expecting from the picture.
