My Etruscan chain... So beautiful, so time consuming. After two years of looking at this chain, I don't know what to do with it. Maybe a little post about this tedious, and intimidating project will help me to finish it.
This 7 .5" fine silver bracelet took about 3 dedicated months to weave between my full time job, and school. Each jump ring was shaped, and fused by hand. Hundreds of rings- a good number melted. Hundreds of links-many which snapped, and hours of weaving, loop, after loop, after work-hardened loop. It is a masterpiece, an ancient technique replicated by my own two prematurely arthritic hands.
Now, just what the heck do I do with it?!
