Byzantine with Turquoise (dyed)

sterling byzantine and turquoise setThis is just one example of my embellished Byzantine  necklace and bracelet sets (earrings also available).  Each byzantine segment is connected by hand looped turquoise (dyed) stones.

The Byzantine pattern is one of the most durable and elegant weaves that can be used in making jewelry. This pattern is created by folding rings in on themselves and weaving through the middle of the chain which forms a box weave pattern. This weave is used extensively as a decorative accent or for creating stand alone pieces.

I created each using 18 gauge .925 sterling silver handmade rings and sterling lobster clasp for the necklace as well as sterling silver toggle clasp for the bracelet.
