This art deco bracelet is designed with two sizes of rings. The bigger rings are anodized aluminum in black, which are paired with smaller copper rings. Closes with a black toggle clasp.
The total wearable length of this bracelet is adjustable between 6 3/4 and 7 3/4 inches. While the length of just the dragonscale portion is 6 inches, and has a width of 1/2 an inch.
Dragonscale Chainmaille Weave
The dragonscale chainmaille weave is essentially two European 4 in 1 weaves interwoven, and two ring sizes must be used to make this weave. For it to work properly, the smaller rings outer diameter must be at least slightly smaller than the larger rings inner diameter. An intriguing feature about this weave is the larger rings only go through the smaller rings, and vice versa.

Caring For Copper Jewelry
To help keep your copper jewelry looking great and prevent skin discoloration, please note the following information.
1) Keep your copper jewelry dry and don’t wear it all the time. It’s best not to wear copper when working out, swimming, at the beach, in high humidity or in the sun for long periods.
2) To help keep your copper jewelry clean, lightly wipe it down with an anti-tarnish cloth to remove oxidation. Any anti-tarnish cloth typically used for silver will work. Plus, you can also store it in a zip lock bag to slow down the tarnishing effect.
3) If discoloration is a concern, it can be minimized or prevented by adding a barrier between the copper and your skin. Renaissance Wax is a protective wax and is good way to protect copper jewelry. This is not a permanent solution and you will have to reapply it often. The item in this listing does not come pre-treated with any protective wax.
4) Lastly, to help minimize tarnishing and skin discoloration, keep your copper jewelry away from chemicals. For example, don’t use hand lotion when wearing copper nor wear copper while cleaning.
