The Byzantine weave is a timeless design that was originally used in chainmaille and has been around for a thousand years. Wearing this beautiful bracelet is like wearing a piece of history and the intricate design is guaranteed to get comments. It’s length is sized to hang low on the wrist, so as to catch the light as you move.
This bracelet started out as a simple spool of solid silver wire. I made these (there a 3 different sizes) entirely by hand.
Each handmade 8mm diameter ring is individually cut from the 1.3mm sterling silver wire and is then painstakingly formed together into this tightly woven chain.
There are 3 different types for this chainmaille bracelet. The photo of all the bracelets will give you a size comparison between the widths. This particular bracelet design has a more open weave than the standard womens design.
They are in order from top to bottom:

The forth and fifth photos show this bracelet and the womens “standard” size as a comparison.
This bracelet is provided with a high quality sprung jewellery case perfect to give as a present.
