Permanent Jewelry by Marcusstratus Permanent Jewelry by Marcusstratus
Yup! that's right, These two bracelets are attached to my wrist... permanently. well, until I decide to cut them off with some wire cutters. There an alteration of the European 4-1 weave with the addition of bronze rings. the shinny white metal is called inconel. it's called a super alloy because it's more corrosion resistant than surgical stainless and is just as strong :D The rings themselves are 1/4" 16g for the inconel and the bronze is 5/16" 14g

I have been trying to find someplace that makes Permanent Jewelry, I have looked almost everywhere at this point and I have become exhausted.... If you don't mind me asking. How did you go about making this? I dont have the slightest clue. Or is there a way I could commision a small Anklet with the last ring not closed so once it adorns my ankle I can have it closed? Any information or help would be appreciated.

This is chainmaile (also spelled chainmail, chainmale, etc.) Originally used as medieval armour. You can find tutorials and resources at www.mailleartisans.org/ and theringlord.com/ as well as other places via google. I started out by making my own rings out of electrical wiring, but that takes a lot longer than buying them premade

Strangely similar to my anklet. It is silver chain and I put it on with beading pliers.

mmhmm! Same idea :) doesn't come off unless you bend the rings or cut them

yeah. I have had it on for about five years now and I only had to fix it once. The chain is pretty thick too, though I am not sure of the measurement.

oh wow, impressive. I only wore mine for a few months at the longest. I believe I cut them off because of my pottery class in High School... gets very messy when on the wrists.

That is why I use an anklet it never gets in the way when I write
