This 19 inch long necklace is woven in a Triffids chainmaille weave using over 420 aluminum rings.
Aluminum is hypoallergenic and low maintenance being just as easily cleaned as stainless steel and just as forgiving of chemicals and salt. Aluminum is not nearly as strong as steel but is far lighter. Even the heaviest pieces like feathers compared to the same work in steel or bronze. Aluminum can be anodized giving it its gorgeous array of colors. These colors are durable but can be damaged. Aluminum jewelry should be treated somewhat gently.
Triffids is a weave I invented in the spring of 2016 and the first of a whole family of related weaves. All of the Triffids family weaves are chain-like, three-sided, and don't lend themselves to flat sheets. The original and namesake of the family is probably the most triangular while others are rounder.
