This Delightful Kriss Kross Barrel Chain Maille Bracelet is a charming addition to any outfit. These rings will remind you of fairy colors as the lavender, rose and seafoam dance across your wrist. These rings are anodized aluminum making them not only light to wear but hypoallergenic as well which is great for those that have an allergy to some metals.
What is anodized aluminum? The aluminum alloy used is 95% aluminum and 5% magnesium; this creates a ring that is approx. 2/3rds the strength of steel but 1/3rd the weight. Anodizing is a process that adds a hard finish to the ring that gives it its color. The finish is corrosion resistant and can stand up to most damage without flaking, cutting or grinding on the ring with another hard metal surface (grooved pliers, scissors, etc...) and acids like chlorine will cause damage. Combined this means you have rings that are light, strong and resistant to most forms of common wear and tear. Cleaning should be handled with water and nonacidic soap.
The Barrel weave is made of 2 rings in a stacked pattern that is held in place with a ring going the other way and two “barrel” rings (done here in a different color) passing through them. In addition to the barrel weave, it is also made with the weave called Mobius Flowers. This weave is made by simply joining three or more rings together in a spiral. If you add enough of them you will create what is known as a Mobius ball
Size: Bracelet will fit a wrist size of 7 inches loosely
I make this in sizes from 6-9.5" (see below for measurement in centimeters) but are happy to make it smaller or larger, just get in touch to discuss before ordering. To get the fit right, first measure your wrist, then add the following,
• ¼” if you like a snug fit (good for cuffs)
• ½” if you like a standard fit
• ¾” if you like a looser fit
Example: My wrist measurement is 6¾”. If I would like my bracelet to be snug I would select the 7” option. Likewise, If I would like it to be looser I would select the 7½” option.
Also, this Bracelet can be made in a variety of colors, which are available on the site.
