Chainmaille Necklace

  • $75.00
    Unit price per 


This chainmaille  necklace is a statement maker! Thick 14 gauge, 1 inch rings tested my wrist strength & shapes the chain. A cute rosetta dangles at the end.
Made from brilliant, food grade stainless steel: heavy metal free & safe for parrots, hypoallergenic for people.  
The welded stainless steel chain backing up the back half of this unique piece is from the parrot supply store @FeatherAddictions.  
The hook clasp is handmade from food grade stainless steel wire.

Chainmaille is an ancient process, building each piece by hand, one link at a time with just a pair of pliers, a ton of patience & time.

* Parrot safe does not mean parrot-proof: strong beaks can still damage FeatherWhipped handmade jewelry - they just won't get heavy metal toxicity while doing it. The same potential injury & choking hazard applies as it would with any jewelry. This is not a parrot toy :)

Did you know?
Companion parrots often die from heavy metal toxicity due to playing with jewelry. (keys & makeup brushes,too!). It's known that jewelry components can be high enough in lead & cadmium to be toxic to children, but in my research I discovered that even high quality jewelry components contain zinc, copper, lead & tin - all of which are toxic to parrots. Most jewelry components are brought in from China with no MSDS sheets to check what is in the material. Even with 304 and 316 stainless steel parts!
I spent an entire year sourcing out 304 stainless steel and food grade aluminum made in north america with MSDS sheets to confirm they are free from dangerous heavy metals to protect our flocks :)
