This pair of drop earrings is woven in a Japanese chainmaille weave using beautiful, durable bronze & steel.

Stainless steel is hypoallergenic, low maintence, and extremely durable. It will never rust, tarnish, or color your skin. Bronze is also hypoallergenic but, rarely, can temporarily color skin. Bronze is far more durable than pure copper and slower to tarnish. It will antique with a natural patina over time and can be restored to a shine with common household products. This piece should be kept away from salt and strong chemicals such as bleach as the bronze will likely spot.

Japanese weaves are historically used in armor in samurai armor, similar to chainmail's use in europe, although the weave itself is structurally different. That structure is so basic though that it also forms the basis of many modern weaves and is even, tecnically, the family some of the most rudementary chain weaves fall into, although the family differences are less meaningful in the very simple weaves and are more a matter of interpritation.

All of my earrings have hypoallergenic earwires for your safety and comfort!
