Sterling silver agate beaded necklace
Original sterling silver chainmaille and agate necklace. This necklace reminds me of the shaman jewellery that was designed to show the connections between the wearer and powerful natural forces. This necklace has beautiful earth toned, translucent agate beads and an original chainmaille pendant. The front beads are suspended on hammered silver wire and the necklace beads are wrapped on the wire. The wire used in this necklace is eco-friendly commercially recycled sterling silver wire.
The length of this necklace is 55cm. The pendant length at its longest point is 7cm and it is 6cm wide.
The chainmaille weave in this necklace is an historical armour weave, an amazing link to the past. The rings served as a protection against spears, knives and swords. This pattern was not the main chainmaille used for armour because of its heavier, tighter weave, a fragment of this pattern from the Celtic Iron Age was discovered in Switzerland.
