"Perfect!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I opened this package and my seven year old immediately said, It looks like a snake. This chain is gorgeous, substantial, and a piece of art all on its own. I LOVE it. When you want a chain to be enough all by itself then you need this necklace.

Overall this is a terrific, well made, sturdy and very attractive necklace. I have had a lot of use out of it. It is beautiful alone as well as stands up well to an enhancer. Really really nice piece.

Wonderful craftsmanship. This chain is intricate and beautiful but has a lot of weight to it. It will look great with my other chains and enhancers or can be worn alone.

Very clean and smooth. The craftsmanship is superb. The only thing is that I probably wont be able to use my pendants with it.

"solid craftsmanship + excellent design"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

based on this quality of this piece, i will likely buy more from this artist. the diameter is small (which is clearly indicated in the description) but its a very dense braid. I looked at it with a 10x loupe and using that i could see that the chain is constructed by hook-and-loop stitching of two different diameters of silver wire (one diameter per strand). The amount of skill and effort required to build a single necklace is obviously substantial. I look forward to wearing it

"I love these"

Im current in love with this style of earring. The ones with a friction back and some sort of drop component. This pair has dark stones and looks super beautiful with my dark-colored amethyst bead necklace.

"Simply gorgeous, beautifully crafted!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I had a bracelet similar to this 10 years ago that was lost. I decided to treat myself to this piece, and I am so glad that I did. This is more spectacular than what I had before. This one is a work of art—significant but not heavy. The craftsmanship is truly beautiful. I am grateful to Mr. Sarjana for his artistry. ???? Many thanks to him and to Novica. ?? I truly love this piece.
