The earrings pictured here are created by combining Helm Weave and Byzantine Weave. The name Helm chain comes from a Finnish term and describes a chain made with parallel rings held together with smaller rings, orbited by a single larger ring. The Byzantine weave (is also referred to as “Idiot’s Delight”, “Fool’s Dilemma” and “Birdcage”. This is one of the most famous chainmaille weaves and 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 wire rings are enameled copper and bright aluminum. The ear wires are a precious metal called Nyobium. Findings made with niobium are hypoallergenic because they do not contain any nickel alloys, so they are safe for someone who is allergic to jewelry with nickel, copper, or other base metals and alloys.
