The "helm" a/k/a the "parallel" weave is categorized as "captive." Every third large ring is held captive with no rings passing through it by the two smaller rings which hold the form together, preventing the chain from twisting. The weave is feminine but substantial with an intriguing pattern. This particular bracelet was woven with 18 gauge wire and is finished with a sterling silver toggle clasp. The bracelet is 8" and weighs 16 grams. We offer the bracelet in several combinations of metals. Matching earrings available. Presented in an organza drawstring pouch with anti-tarnish bag.
