This chainmaille necklace uses large red carnelian oval beads and silver aluminium jump rings, woven into a classic European 6 in 1 chainmaille pattern.
Fastened with a lobster clasp, this bold chainmaille necklace currently measures 16 inches and sits at the base of the throat. I can adjust the length though, so please let me know when you check out if you’d like a different length.
Aluminium is a lightweight material which is very slow to tarnish. For this reason I use it a lot in my larger pieces – if it does begin to dull, you can wash it gently with soap and water to restore the shine.
The carnelian beads are wrapped on silver-plated wire. This will oxidise slowly with exposure to air, and can be cleaned with a silver polishing cloth if desired.
