Jens Pind Linkage

Jens Pind Linkage (JPL) is a spiral weave that is dependant on the Aspect Ratio of the ring size in order to function. This bracelet is simple yet intricate in the same breath.
Sterling Silver JPL Bracelet
Sterling Silver bracelet in a delicate Jens Pind
Linkage  chainmaille  weave makes a dainty
statement that is perfect for every day wear.

All of our jewelry begins with raw wire that is hand
wrapped around a mandrel then saw cut into tiny
rings. These rings are then interwoven together to
form some amazing jewelry!

This bracelet measures 8” (20cm) end to end and is
held securely by a sterling silver lobster clasp. Just
leave a note to the seller upon checkout and I will be
happy to alter this treasure to fit you.

Sterling Silver Persian Dragonscale Bracelet

This is really an eye catcher. I love the intricacy of the design.
Stop by the my site to check it out
Sterling Silver Persian Dragonscale Bracelet
This piece is not for the faint of heart-weighing in at
a full 1.5 oz, this piece is a stunner to behold.

The Persian Dragonscale bracelet began it's life as
a humble mass of sterling silver wire. This wire was
carefully hand coiled and saw cut into a shimmery
pile of rings that were then interwoven, one at a
time, to form a piece of wearable art.

This bracelet measures 8 inches (20 cm) long from
toggle clasp to bar and over 1/2 inch across. A
feature of this bracelet is the height. It is 1/4 inch
(1/2cm) thick.

couldn't be a mixture of bright and antiqued copper. But I've been searching
around Internet forums and discovered that mixed metals are are very

Here are a few examples of mixed metals I have found on Etsy. I have these
in my favorites list and kinda stare at them every day, like a kid who looks
longingly in a toy store window.
This is a chainmaille bracelet made by MBOI (href=""> . I love
chainmaille, though I don't have any jewelry that has chainmaille in it. It
reminds me of knights of Arthurian times, who wore chainmaile with their armor.
It is a very epic medium. I love this bracelet because of the contrasts of the
brass and the silvery steel.
