Handmade Tarnish Resistant 2x2 Chainmaille Silver 19.5 inch Necklace

Details

This beautiful artistic silver handmade wire simple chainmaille necklace is the perfect accessory for anyone who desires the soft shine of the metal chain. It is the ideal necklace in all seasons of the year. Wear this light weight necklace to the elegant formal dinner to the casual beach seen. The soft sheen of the silver is one of the most traditional materials for elegant jewelry. This necklace is perfect for any occasion and season of the year. When worn, one will feel freedom of movement and elegance of style.

Chainmaille chain is very traditional yet extremely unique. The links are completely made by me using tarnish resistant craft gold wire. Then the links are assembled by interlocking two rings of wire. This is done until the desired length is obtained. The lobster claw clasp is machine made and offers security to wear while participating in high activity events.

This chain is extremely light weighing in at 0.6 oz. (17.0 g.). It measures, including the clasp, 19.5 inches (48.26 cm).

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:
• Wrap metal wire around a rod to make a coil.
• Cut the coil, creating individual "jump rings."
• 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.

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

While making wire wrapped/woven pendants it was a natural to make matching chain necklaces at appropriate lengths for the size and shape of the focal structure. In observing what was offered in many jewelry shops on and off line, I discovered that plain chains were very popular as well as elegant adornments for men and women. Therefore, I decided to offer this simple chainmaille 2x2 linked necklaces in various lengths. This creation includes a handmade matching hook and eye or toggle clasp. As always pendants can be added to this amazing fashion statement.

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.
