Double Chain Choker and Bracelet

19 11 2011

Byzantine Choker and Bracelet set

I’m quite pleased with the way this choker and bracelet set came out. The double rows of chain give this just enough width to make them shiny and noticeable without looking chunky. 

The rings make each double-Byzantine chain unit stand out. Together, the choker and bracelet make a beautiful set to accent the neck and wrist.

On the other hand, I’m not too excited about the jeweler’s brass I used for the interspersed rings and will replace them with gold plated rings. I initially chose brass because it is strong enough to keep the rings from opening under pressure, and it is stronger than gold plate. I will double the gold plate rings, but the result will look even better. Gold will have more shine than brass. The final effect will be very classy and ready for a dress-up night out.
