Aquamarine Swarovski Pendant Necklace with Gunmetal Chainmaille Accents This beautiful crystal is the birthstone for March! Aquamarine is often a deep blue color, as this crystal is, but is also found as a greenish sea-blue stone from which the name is derived. It is associated with the Throat Chakra and is said to help overcome the fear of public speaking, an excellent stone for teachers. A bezel set Swarovski crystal hangs from handmade gunmetal chainmaille segment called Jens Pind. The chain is finished off with additional gunmetal rings set off with smaller aquamarine crystals. You’re sure to reach for this charming piece often!

Process: Each of my chainmaille pieces is made by hand. When I began making chainmaille I used mostly sterling silver and I enlisted my husband to use my jumpringer system to cut the rings. Now, in addition to sterling silver, I use many more types of materials and many excellent vendors are available to purchase rings. In each case, two pair of pliers are used, one holds the chain, the other grabs an open jump rings and adds it to the last.
Chainmaille Weave: Jens Pind. Looks simple but is one of the most difficult to conquer! Also a tiny segment of Byzantine.
Material: Gunmetal plated brass
Rings: Heavy gauge so you do not have to worry about the rings pulling about.
Other Materials: Swarovski Aquamarine Rivoli Crystal, Metal Bezels, Gunmetal Toggle Clasp.
