This 8 inch long bracelet is woven in a Persian chainmaille weave using over 100 bronze rings.
Bronze is hypoallergenic but, rarely, can temporarily color skin. Bronze is far more durable than pure copper and slower to tarnish. It antiques with a natural patina over time but can be restored to a shine easily with common household products. Bronze should be kept away from salt and strong chemicals such as bleach.
The persian weave family, including turkish variations, trace ancient origins. As a family, they vary widely but always have a signature sinuousness. They are versatile weaves that can achieve almost any form from thick cord-like chains, to wide cuffs and wider sheets. Truly one of my favorites to work with.
