Handmade chains are special:

Most chains are made by machines, whereas handmade chains are labor-intensive, with each individual link having been worked on by the jewelry maker and left with its own character. Watch a video of Simone making one of these chains:

For this silver necklace each loop of silver is shaped from wire, cut, linked to other loops and then all of them are soldered closed. Finally each link is hammered to give it a beautiful hammer-beaten finish which catches the light. The handmade chain is finished with a sturdy and secure bolt clasp.

The chain is then tumbled for many hours to give it a polished bright and sparkly finish.

Wear it in different ways:

You can wear this chain necklace in multiple ways. The sterling silver clasp can secure the chain at any link, meaning you can wear it at its full length or clasp it higher up to leave a trailing strand of loops, which can be worn hanging down at either the front or the back. The longer necklaces are even more versatile.

What you'll love:

  • Quality sterling silver, including the clasp.
  • Entirely made by hand, with each chain having its own unique character.
  • Amazingly versatile jewelry design: wear it full length, wear it short, have a trail of chain hanging down at the front or at the back.
  • Looks great worn with pretty much anything: add some sparkle and movement to a casual outfit or some contemporary style when dressing up.
  • A beautiful, quality piece of handmade jewelry that you'll treasure for years to come and will wear again and again.

Just the facts:

  • Materials: sterling silver.
  • Link size: each link is approximately 0.4" (1cm) in diameter.
  • Necklace size: approximately 19.5" (50cm) in length.
