European 4in1 Diamond (Earrings)(Gold-filled)




("European 4in1 Diamond" by Handmaden Designs LLC)

These are a very elegant pair of 14kt gold-filled earrings.  They are the classic European 4in1 diamond pattern chainmaille earrings. They measure at 2.25 inches long and (when hanging) are nearly an inch wide at the widest point.  European 4in1 is a classic and well-loved chainmaille weave.  It's beautiful in its understated simplicity and feels great when worn!

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.
