Liusaidh (Earrings)(Sterling Silver/Tantalum)

("Liusaidh" by Handmaden Designs LLC)

Liusaidh is a very elegant Chelydra weave chainmaille design.  These earrings are made from sterling silver and tantalum wire with freshwater pearls and are entirely hand-made: every link and even the earring hooks themselves have been made by hand. Tantalum is a very rare, and absolutely beautiful metal.  It is naturally a gray-ish purple in colour, and is related to the better known, and far less rare, metal niobium.  These earrings measure at about 1.5 inches long and almost 3/4 of an inch wide at the widest point.

Chelydra weave and Liusaidh design are original creations by Handmaden Designs LLC.
