I am an Independent Studio Jeweler and have an Associates of Fine Arts. I specialize in hand-crafted, historically inspired, one-of-a-kind jewelry using a variety of techniques, including, but not limited to: chainmaille, wire-work, metalsmithing, and Steampunk. Each ring has been coiled, cut, and woven by hand with many clasps also being handmade.
Liusaidh is a very elegant
chainmaille design based on the weave: Chelydra. Every link in this
pedant has been coiled and cut entirely by hand. It is made from
sterling silver and tantalum wire with a freswhater pearl drop.
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. The pendant measures at just
over 2.5 inches long and is just over 1 inch wide at the widest point.
Chelydra weave and Liusaidh design are original creations by Handmaden Designs LLC.
