This Alluring Mermaids Treasures Chain Maille Bracelet is very versatile. Wear it with a pair of jeans or with a pants suit it will look great with either. The first time you look at it, however, it may look very complicated but it is not. When you get down into the break down of the rich bronze and shimmering aqua colored beads it is truly luxurious. This bracelet is made from bronze colored Anodized Aluminum rings., and aqua colored glass beads. The Anodized Aluminum rings are tarnish resistant and will not rust. Clean with very mild soap and warm water, rinse and dry thoroughly. This item is 100% handmade and after time there will be normal wear and tear on the metal and rubber rings. Please keep this in mind when considering this beautiful bracelet.
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 it's 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.
Since this is a handcrafted item there can be some small tool marks (scuffs) on the piece, please remember this when purchasing. Any ring with obvious damage is not used; however, I endeavor to prevent any scuffs and marring.
Size: Bracelet will fit a wrist size of 7 1/2 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. If I would like it to be looser I would select the 7½” option.
This Bracelet weave is made in a variety of colors, which are available on the site.
