These intricate chainmaille bracelets are handcrafted in our studio from recycled sterling silver wire. The meticulous weaving of hundreds of tiny rings makes these bracelets incredibly sturdy and exceptionally comfortable to wear. This Byzantine weave bracelet has a width of 6mm and is crafted from 18 gauge sterling silver wire. It can be customized with either a toggle clasp or a lobster clasp in the order options. If you are looking for a slightly larger diameter Byzantine weave, check out our 5mm and 7mm Byzantine bracelet listings!

To create chainmaille, the wire is first wound into coils, and the coils are sawn into rings. Then each ring is individually opened, woven into the pattern, and then closed. Chainmaille (also referred to as chain mail or maille) dates back as far as the Etruscans in the 4th century B.C. The technique of weaving rings together to form armor spread worldwide, including as far as India and China. The Byzantine Empire then brought chainmaille to Europe, and during the Middle Ages, it was commonly used as battle armor.

Measuring Your Wrist for Bracelets:
The best way to get a good fit is to measure your wrist. To do this, use a cloth tape measure to measure around your wrist where you will wear the bracelet. Then, add about 1 inch to the circumference of your wrist. For instance, my wrist measures 6 inches, so a 7-inch bracelet fits me perfectly, fitting just slightly loose. We recommend going to the next size up if you are in-between sizes.

Materials
Silver
100% of the silver used in our designs is recycled. Silver is a precious metal, and Pure silver, also called fine silver, is 99.9% pure, often stamped “.999”. Pure silver is too soft for products like jewelry. So, to make fine silver more durable copper is added, creating sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, often stamped “sterling” or “.925”. Our sterling silver only ever contains silver and copper, and never contains other metals like zinc and nickel, which can irritate sensitive skin. Over time, any sterling silver jewelry exposed to air will tarnish, but this tarnish can be easily removed with a polishing cloth.
