A hallmarked, fine silver (99.9% pure), necklet using the ancient "loop-in-loop" technique.

The process starts with a bar of recycled pure silver that is hammered, rolled and drawn into wire that is fused into rings, then bent and interwoven with the next link. Absolutely no solder is used throughout this entire piece. Fusing involves getting the temperature of the metal up to the point of almost melting, then just melting at the join. This ancient technique produces a very strong join that I don't file or sand, so the joins are visible, but very strong (look at the close up picture to see what I mean). Entirely hand made by me in my Devon workshop from 100% locally refined and recycled silver.

These pieces are approximately long and 4-5 mm wide and 41cm long. The weight on these pieces is approximately 30 grams, but they do vary a little.

Each one of these "loop-in-loop" pieces is a labour of love, taking many hours to complete, which is why my shop isn't flooded with them, but I love doing it. I have made up to 10 of these a year so far, so they are pretty exclusive.

Each piece has the hallmark clearly visible on the ring part of the clasp, including the date letter.

The clasp, is again made of fine silver, starting with a puddle of molten silver and gradually working it into the shape of wire needed to complete the piece. Again, this is attached by fusing and not soldering. Some tool marking from the forging process is left to show the authenticity of the piece.

These can be made in almost any length, as long as you are prepared for the wait.

Goldsmith, Silversmith, Gemmologist and Coin Dealer. I have been making, repairing and dealing in Jewellery since 1992. Most of what I make are one off, handmade pieces, but there are a few limited run pieces also. Designs are often based around technique or a particular gemstone. Preowned pieces get a full check over before being sold and any repairs are carried out sympathetically. My interest in Minerals and Gemstones started at an early age and I'm still a gem geek now. Before buying any items from me, please ensure that they are not prohibited from being imported in your country. Due to the high percentage of fraudulent transactions I no longer send to Central America, South America, India, Pakistan or Africa. Russia is now on my list of banned countries due to current events. Unfortunately this harms the innocent people of Russia as well as those responsible.
