This handmade jewelry can be worn for a lifetime and with care, it will look great for generations! The first piece I'm featuring is the pretty necklace you see on the left. The Aries Necklace in Blue Chalcedony and Sterling Silver is a beautiful wire wrapped creation you'll be happy to add to your jewelry collection - pretty and feminine, with soft blue chalcedony this necklace could easily become one of your favorite pieces of jewelry. It could be yours - for just $85.00! Next up we've got a silver chainmaille ring! This ring can be worn by both sexes ... men like them too! Lorian makes these rings completely by hand from silver wire links, and you'll love the silky smooth feel of this weave. At one time this technique was used to make body armor for protection in war; today we appreciate this skill for the artform it truly is. Chainmaille can be made in many styles; this traditional pattern is not just beautiful; its a well made ring you'll enjoy wearing daily. You can have one made for you - in your size - for $35.00. Here's a pretty pair of earrings from this jewelry designer! These are petite in size - 7/8" top to bottom. They sure pack a lot of style and color into a small package! If you love emeralds, these could be for you ... the Tiny Key and Emerald Earrings in Sterling Silver are a really cute pair of dangles that will accent your wardrobe in a beautiful way every time you put them on! Carefully wrapped in gleaming sterling silver wire, the emerald briolettes are a nice green color; and the tiny keys are a lovely design element that really add a nice touch to these dangles. Order them today and you could be wearing them soon ... just $16.00! The last piece I'm featuring today is a bracelet. This is another chainmaille piece; the weave is called Queen's maille, but any man would be happy with a nice heavy silver bracelet like this one! Lorian made this in a "plus-size" so its larger than a standard length; but because its a thick chain it will fit up to a 7 1/4" size wrist. The chain is 6mm wide - about 1/4"; because its square, it is just as thick as it is wide. This is not your standard silver chain - you won't find an Italian silver version at your local flea market; that's for sure! This awesome Sterling Silver Queen Chain Maille Square Mail Plus Size Bracelet with Toggle Clasp could be on YOUR wrist - for the amazingly low bargain price of only $99.00! Visit Dashery Jewelry and have a look around. You'll love this artisan's style! Handmade silver chainmaille jewelry and handcrafted gemstone jewelry makes a great gift, so treat a friend - or yourself - today!
