Helm/Parallel Chainmaille Bracelet-Custom Work

These Sterling Silver Bracelets were made using the helm (also known as parallel) chainmaille weave.  For womens bracelets I use smaller jump rings in 18 gauge sterling silver wire to make it more feminine.  This can also be made into necklaces and earrings.  The mens bracelets I use 16 gauge sterling silver wire to make larger rings and a figure 8 clasp.  These were custom ordered as a his and her gift set.  I unfortunately did not get pictures of them side by side to see the difference in sizes.
