With the exquisite vintage ring above as an exception, I'm generally not too keen on spiders. However their intricate and finely spun webs are simply gorgeous and offer much inspiration for contemporary jewellery.
Many of our designers use fine metal wires to create incredible structures that result in simply fabulous pieces. From fine wire necklaces, layered or woven chains, through to age-old chainmail, our website is full of great choices. Here are a few examples to get you started.
Chainmail is technique for weaving fabric like materials from small metal rings, that is still embraced by contemporary designers. For example Simon Harrison uses chainmail as the base of his fabulous leopard bracelet, whereas NAIIAD lets the beautiful pattern of tiny rings do all the talking in her elegant mermaid bracelet.
Layering or weaving fine chains can lead to spectacular results, like in Myriam Oude Vrielink's woven Ribbon necklace or Claudia Milic's Popular Siara necklaces.
Special Orders at DesignYard
We work hard to get our pieces just right for you. Sizing, engraving and alterations are possible and we need a bit of time to get special orders ready. If you're looking to personalise a piece for a holiday gift we recommend you let us know sooner rather than later.
Some can be ready in a week, but did you know that a good portion of our pieces can take up to 3 months to make? So, book your appointments in plenty of time for your special event this autumn/winter. We are happy to advise you about your special order during your appointment.
