This is my best piece of chainmaille I have ever made. I made this piece for the Beads and Beyond Magazine Jewellery Maker of the Year Competition 2012- Chainmaille category. And I CAME SECOND!!!!!! How brilliant is that for my first jewellery competition?? I was thrilled lol
I called this Ice Collar because of the icy blues and the sparkly crystals and I came up with this design whilst looking at the Ancient style Egyptian Jewellery worn by Elizabeth Taylor in the film Cleopatra one Saturday afternoon!
This piece has around 4000 rings all linked by hand! With ring sizes ranging from 2.4mm to 10mm in shades of Silver, Ice blue, Turquoise and Navy Blue. Rings are silver plated, and coated copper.
This piece feels quite heavy when you pick it up but not when you wear it: it feels seductively slinky and shimmery when it is on. I have only worn it to have photographs taken and I felt like Cleopatra! lol
Sorry this piece has sold
