This 8.25 inch long bracelet is woven in a Persian chainmaille weave using over 100 bronze & steel rings.
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.
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.
