These intricate chainmaille bracelets are handcrafted in our studio from recycled copper wire. The meticulous weaving of hundreds of tiny rings makes these bracelets incredibly sturdy and exceptionally comfortable to wear. They are truly timeless and stylish for all genders. This Byzantine weave bracelet is crafted from 16 gauge recycled copper wire, has a width of 7mm, and connects with a lobster clasp. If you are interested in a thinner chain, check out our 6mm copper Byzantine bracelet! 

The wire is first wound into coils to create chainmaille, 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 to 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 the circumference of 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, if your wrist measures 6 inches, a 7-inch bracelet would be a good fit, fitting just slightly loose. We recommend going to the next size up if you are in between sizes.

Copper - Copper is an element and a mineral known for its warm red-orange color, ductility, and malleability. Copper has been used for thousands of years for jewelry and many people find that copper jewelry relieves joint pain from arthritis. When copper is in contact with the skin, it combines with the air and oils in the skin to create a green layer of copper salts, which is harmless and will usually wash off with soap and water. Over time copper will darken to a natural patina if left exposed to air. The best way to keep your copper jewelry from tarnishing is to wear it regularly and store it in an air-tight plastic bag to slow down tarnishing. Otherwise, copper patina can be removed with a polishing cloth

Care Instructions

When exposed to oxygen, jewelry made with precious metals can get a dark tone, commonly referred to as tarnish.

You can avoid tarnish by wearing your jewelry often. The oils in your skin will polish the metal and keep it looking shiny. However, contact with harsh chemicals, like household cleaning products, will cause corrosion and tarnish — so it’s a good idea to remove jewelry when doing household chores or going swimming. Raw copper can sometimes react with oils in the skin and cause discoloration. This is harmless and can usually be removed with soap and water. 

Tarnish can be easily removed by regular wear and light polishing. It is important to note that, as metal artists, we sometimes intentionally darken or patina parts of our pieces, typically to make small details stand out or add an artistic finish. Use caution when cleaning patinated jewelry since the coloration can be lost with excessive cleaning or polishing.

When you are not wearing your jewelry, be sure to store it properly. Exposure to air will tarnish most metals; storing jewelry in airtight plastic bags with anti-tarnish strips is a great preventative measure. Also, since some metals, like silver, are soft, it is important to store each piece separately so the individual pieces don’t scratch each other. 


  • Clean the piece of jewelry by washing with mild soap and water.
  • Dry your jewelry immediately and thoroughly.
  • Tarnish can be removed by polishing jewelry with a polishing cloth or a piece of flannel or microfiber.
  • To protect your jewelry, you can use a light coat of carnauba wax (car wax) applied according to the container instructions. 

A complementary anti-tarnish strip and polishing cloth are enclosed with each of our orders.
