Byzantine Bar Chain Maille Bracelet

The Byzantine Bar weave is a twist on the traditional Byzantine weave — literally. Individual segments of Byzantine are rotated and linked together side-by-side at the top and bottom. You see a side of Byzantine that you usually don't. It results in a flat, dense weave that looks absolutely luxurious, and yet restrained.


664 rings go into a 7.5 inch bracelet — each opened, linked, and closed, one at a time. The rings are just under 4mm in diameter. The bracelet is half an inch wide (and an eighth of an inch thick).


The Byzantine Bar Bracelet is made from sterling silver rings and findings. It closes with a slide clasp.
