This gorgeous Byzantine link bracelet was handmade from heavy 14 gauge sterling wire. After the wire is formed into rings, the rings are interlocked forming the Byzantine design then each link, or ring, is soldered closed. A labor intensive task but the rewards are worth it, no unsightly open seams to snag on clothing. Definitely a high quality piece weighing over 2 ounces. Size customizable, over 8" there is additional charge.
