This bracelet is constructed by combining two different weaves. One weave is the very popular Byzantine weave. The Byzantine weave (also referred to as “Idiot’s Delight”, “Fool’s Dilemma” and “Birdcage”) belongs to the European family of weaves. There are claims that this weave is more than 2,000 years old. It is very popular for jewelry and is pleasant to look at, as it folds back on itself in a way that plays tricks on your eyes a bit. The second weave used in this bracelet is orbital. Orbital is the general term used to describe the base of all Orbital weaves including some Japanese and Hybrid weaves. The sections of orbital weave here are Orbital 4-in-2 Japanese style. The orbiting rings go around the chain and do not intersect with any other rings.
This bracelet is a solid chunk of jewelry. It is constructed of 14 gauge stainless steel rings with Orbital rings of 14 gauge enamled copper. The bracelet is 8.125 inches long from one end of the stainless steel lobster clasp to the end of the ring on the other side. The bracelet has a diameter of about .5 inches. You will know you are wearing this bracelet! It is solid!
