These are sought after the bracelets are very chunky usually and are quite a price too. I don’t know if you’ve heard of these, unlike the identity bracelets the curb bracelets and ‘belch er bracelets’ and rope bracelets this is a style on its own and very sought after and priced too.
I have had chains of these and resold them but I think the bracelets are also lovely and the one I especially had come from Italy. A bit about the history of where the design of these come from and why they are so loved now. I will also include a video of how it can also be made by yourself if you should want to make on for personal use or to make it to resell.
History of Byzantine
From just a brief look around apparently Normans and has a history connected to Greece and also the Ottoman empire over through Byzantine I am not too over clear as to the issues around the history but it shows that over the span plenty Arts and creativity prevailed and thous jewelry too within the span earlier than it being overthrown and thus within the span of its resilience arts prevailed. It is strange history distant to around 1400 which is ages ago I didn’t look too much further to go into too much detail…it just that it makes me wonder about the name of the bracelets and why ??
i myself may make a genuine attempt if i can get hold of some sterling silver links and they are not too expensive to make a bracelet or once made one will try another. I am being genuine about this as they cost quite a lot to buy. So one of the days when i am not doing too much and just relaxing at home i will try one it looks nice enough to do from watching this video.
So here goes this is a good place for purchasing links and jewellery tools so to start you off with creating something yourself even if you find they don’t have the sterling silver jump rings still check around and use google search to find more things that could keep you creating the bracelet in the video. I did see some silver plated jump rings but i did not note the size…when you look at video then google with also including size details and see if you find the correct materials you require to make the creation .Also another shop beads wholesale which if you put the word ‘jump rings‘ into search this will help !
Also an excellent place to visit is the bead shop covent garden
