Silver bracelet with gold accent--very classy!

Silver bracelet with gold accent–very classy!

Sterling silver and 14 karat gold fill wire combine to make this exceptionally beautiful chain bracelet at a great price. A classy chainmaille rope bracelet.

I love the look of polished sterling silver, but the gold byzantine chainmaille weave in the center makes a great accent in the overall design. And isn’t that a pretty toggle clasp? The ivy vine clasp is sterling silver, too!

Made in the chainmaille weave called Jens Pind Linkage (a.k.a. JPL), this carefully crafted chain bracelet requires precision artisan work to make, with rings at very specific gauges and diameters. In the close-up images, you can see how well the rings are cut and closed. The result is a beautiful silver and gold bracelet that you can wear and enjoy for a long, long time.

I’m a big fan of the JPL weave because it has such a sophisticated look. It’s glamorous and subtle and, oh, so fine. All my JPL bracelets get compliments (even the silver plated and 3-color bracelets), and this one is the most beautiful. I tumble polished the bracelet after making it, and I was impressed when it was done.

This petite bracelet is made with sterling silver and 14/20 gold-filled wire. (14/20 means 14 karat gold that is 5% of the entire wire weight. It’s pretty substantial and WILL NOT wear off.) Although this gold and silver bracelet is petite, at around 3/16 inch wide, it is strong. Still, treat it as you would treat all fine jewelry.

Order the size you need, from 6.5 to 7.75. Order a length about 1/2 inch longer than your wrist so the toggle clasp can open and close. If you need longer than 7.75 inches, ask about processing time and cost.
