  • This is one of my favourite chains, that I call 'oyster', because of the shape of the links. It's a labour intensive, and reasonably complex process - coiling the wire before sawing the coil to make individual, evenly sized jumprings, then soldering all of them closed. Beating opposite sides, then curving them to give the double bend, finally re-sawing half of them before assembling into the chain.

     

    Sounds simple but between each stage I have to heat them all with my blow torch to make the silver malleable - and do so without melting any of my joins!

     

    This exact necklace was commissioned and therefore future ones are usually made to order - yours too will have a fully hallmarked S clasp and every component will be handmade by me. The S clasp will fit in any of the links, each of which has an internal diameter of approximately 9 x 12mm, external dimensions of 12 x 16mm and the curves give a profile of about 3-4mm.

     

    There are two variants - the super lightweight and the regular. Super lightweight is made with 1.2mm wire and I have one, measuring 25 inches /64cm available now, weighing 25grams

     

    As mentioned, future chains will be made to order - it may take up to 2 weeks for me to do so. If the size you want is shown as sold out, please send me a message. I've included postage within this listing - I will be sending your chain by Royal Mail next day, in order to ensure it's covered in case of loss or damage.

     

    Please see my policies regarding returns for items with postage included As with all my fully hand crafted pieces, I use certified recycled sterling silver, and although future chains will be made to the same method, there will be slight variances.
