These Chainmaille earrings, made in an interrupted Byzantine weave, is made from brilliant, food grade 18 gauge Stainless Steel in 3 sizes. Ear wires are also hand made 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.
Shown with matching interrupted Byzantine bracelet (a separate listing).
Want longer earrings in this style to match the bracelet? Message me for a custom pair :)
* 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 :)
In the "Special instructions for seller" box that comes up when you add to cart, please let me know the style of ear wire you would like. -Thank you!
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 :)
