This sterling silver bracelet incorporates the best characteristics of Italian jewellery, blending the high technology of fine chain manufacturing with the age old Italian artisan technique. This woven arm piece begins with 14 strands of the finest Italian box chain available, which is made using state-of-the-art machinery that forms the flat solid silver wire into a perfectly shaped, interlocking box chain. The strands are cut to the proper length and are hand-soldered to one end of the end cap. The strands are then tightly woven in a basket weave pattern.
This work can only be done by hand, and by an experienced, skilled crafts person. There are no machines that can perform this process. The artisan works the strands into a tight pattern in order to form the bracelet in a way that reflects as much light as possible. The closing end cap is then attached to the strands. The bracelet is finished by attaching an extender, also made of fine Italian chain. While the lobster lock is oversized to make the bracelet easier to put on, it complements the bold width of the whole bracelet itself. The bracelet has a bold status look and is soft and comfortable on the arm.
