Wow!

I went window shopping again this morning. From the back pages of a search on Etsy for etsyloggers team I found the lovely bracelet you see here. It comes from the shop Morning Sky Jewelry and what follows is what she wants you to know about it.
This handmade chainmaille (also known as chainmail) bracelet is handcrafted from 18 gauge copper rings woven in a European 4 in 1 pattern.
The 18 gauge hook clasp is also handcrafted.

This piece, although smooth and flexible, is quite substantial with a bit of weight to it. It has been tumbled to a shiny copper finish which will age over time to a deep rich brown. If you prefer the shiny look it can be polished with a copper cleaner or soaked in ketchup for a few hours and then scrubbed with a soft brush (Yes it really works - I have done it)!

This bracelet measures approximately 7-1/4 inches (18.5cm)in length including the clasp and will fit a 7 inch (17.75)wrist.
It measures approximately 3/4 of an inch (2cm)wide.

This bracelet can be lengthened or shortened upon request. If you need an adjustment made, please allow an additional 2 days for shipping.

This bracelet reminds me of knitting which I do. Can you imagine the skill it takes to do it with copper? To see more of this artists work check out the shop.

  2. Thanks so much for featuring my bracelet. I just joined Etsybloggers a few weeks ago and I'm having a ball.
    No, it isn't heavy at all.
