Handmade Chain July 04 2020

Making chain by hand is a meditative thing.  Careful measuring of materials.  Deliberate winding of wire to create links which are meticulously cut and shaped one by one and gingerly soldered so as not to melt the rest.  It is then filed and polished link by link for strength and shine.


 

This contemplative process is often used by jewellers to solidify skills.  Like a mantra of making to keep coming back to.


 

This chain was made by Ellinor Mazza with sections of an heirloom necklace to create a new precious piece to pass down through generations. Something solid and steadfast to cherish for a lifetime and more.
