Sterling Silver Chainmaille Bracelet. Handmade unisex minimalism jewellery by Arctida.

Last week EST challenge's theme was "Simplicity" hosted by Kirschbits.

I love to explore new techniques and styles in jewelry making and then mixing them together. Recently I have started making chainmaille jewelry. Chain maille is an ancient art of weaving together individual rings to create simple and elegant jewelry. I love how diverse each wave looks just because I connected the rings slightly different!  Anyway for this challenge I decided to try one of the simplest waves and make a minimalistic bracelet. No gemstones, no fancy clasps, no oxidation… just shiny silver rings connected to each over. Simplicity at its best don´t ya think? :)
