This was my necklace for 's wedding! She bought all the necklaces for the bridesmaids so I had to go all out.
The eye catching design was all thanks to an English 4-1 weave. 3/16" ID anodized aluminum rings cascade from the rich brown to bronze, which expand into 1/4" brass rings to create a bold statement piece.
Additional materials featured in this steampunk influenced project include: 2 square swavorski crystals in brown, bronze metal beads with textured pattern, brown and orange swavorski crystal 4mm beads and faceted crystals. The centerpiece is a phenomenal skeleton cameo encased in bronzed metal with bronze clock hands on each side for symmetrical balance.
this may be a striking necklace but it can be worn in a business-professional setting. I'd pairs beautifully with suitcoat a to bring any plain outfit to Victorian life!
I love accomodating my overseas clients! I will happily ship internationally, but due to location, it may be difficult to estimate a shipping price without obtaining some additional information. Please inquire further for international shipping prices, and details. I have happy customers from Canada, the UK, Germany, and other principalities and countries!

The suggester said: "This piece is gorgeous from the way the chains drape to the lovely fade from brown to brass at the top! It somehow manages to be over-the-top and full of decoration but without being anything but classy!" (

This piece is high impact, high drama and clearly well planned. The intricacies of the chainmail are precise and well executed, making it look like a knitted collar to a sweater instead of a construction of metal, crystals and charms. The Ombre color transitions are right on target with today's fashion trends and were surprising and tastefully executed. However, there are a few small flaws with the piece. While they do not detract from the beauty of refinement of the design, they may affect its ease of wear and propensity to damage garments and snag hair. The single, most infuriating and most important part of executing chainmail pieces is precision, but also, ensuring the links close fully. I only saw a couple individual lines with this problem, but they fell in a key area, one in which they have the highest likelihood of snagging, the closure. A simple fix and a small error that is completely irrelevant to the beauty and execution of this piece. I hope that the artist will continue to progress and share more of this level of skill and dedication to us in the future.
It took some time to settle on the idea and design that I wanted, but prep time for the links was about 3 hours, and construction took 8 hours once all the links were ready! It doesn't seem like a long time, but it took a whole day. It was reallly nice to stretch when it was finished.
