Six piece hand chain

Hello Janet from WireGemsNLeather here to share my newest statement style design hand chain.

These style bracelets have not been commercialized enough, so I hope to give them a little more attention with this very noticeable design.

Wanting to just make three layers of circle chain together as a layered bracelet, this design popped into my head to connect the three into one and add a ring chain.

Inside piece

Keeping to this idea I added an “inside the hand” chain maille piece that also holds the front in place.

This bracelet also has many lobster clasps so it can be worn with many pieces or without.

I love the sea blue sparkly crystals that add the color bling and goes so nice with the brass.

    Beautiful Janet! I hope this design gets some traction for you. It does deserve some love. So pretty and kind of vintage and modern combined. Thank you for sharing

  • Anthony says:

    I found the lobster clasps to be the most interesting aspect here, and definitely think this highlights it the most. Amazing work!

  • Thank you so much Rena. So kind of you to showcase my work on Jewelry Making Journal. I appreciate it much and have been viewing your journal for 4 years now and always find such interesting talent and advice! Love your how 2’s too!

  • Thanks so much I hope it gets traction too, it’s fun to wear! So glad you like it, and I agree with the vintage modern vibe, thanks

  • Thank you so much Anthony! It’s very special to get a mans point of view. I believe with so many parts in this bracket set, the lobster clasps give the wearer choices on how much or little they want to put on. Thank you so much for your admiration!

    Love it, love it, love it! Wore a bracelet of this type when I was in college. Have tried making them myself, but couldn’t quite get it right. Will try the palm piece to stabilize it. Hope I’m not too old to pull it off now!
