Man of Steeldscn1602

Pick any of our stainless steel chains, pop on a stainless steel lobster claw clasp with our stainless steel jumprings, and you will have a timeless, classic bracelet or necklace that is handsome and rugged for the man in your life, who is hopefully also handsome and rugged. 😉 If you like that sort of thing.

Men generallydscn1603 wear larger sizes.For bracelets, anywhere from 7.5 to 10.5 inches (19 – 30 cm) can be appropriate, but if you have to take a wild-ass guess – go for 9-10 inches, (23 – 26 cm) depending on his physique. Remember – they are easier to make shorter than longer! For necklaces, an 18 inch necklace will sit at the base of the neck and be visible above a t-shirt, 20 inches will fall about at the collarbone and disappear behind the t-shirt but show with a v-neck or open shirt. 22 inches is common and can be worn inside a shirt or out to show it off – and these chains are striking enough to want to show – and the longer 24 inch necklace lays close to the heart.
Golden Harvest
dscn1601 dscn1600This “Wheat” pattern chain is so fabulous – it just doesn’t need any adornment. Just a clasp and two jumprings and it looks like you robbed a jewelry store. Attach the lobster claw clasp with a jumpring, and you can hook the lobster claw directly into the end loop of the chain, or add a jumpring to hook into, your choice.



Cheater Chainmaile

dscn1606This wonderful chain has the look of chainmaile – but if you have the attention span of a gnat – like me – ooo – look, shiny. Anyway – you can whip this up quickly – just add a clasp. Chose a box clasp with a crystal or stone for a very special look, without a lot of time. Naturally – the one I used is out of stock because it has been in my stash for years. Maybe you have some like that too? I used a 2-strand clasp to attach to the two sides of the chain, but you could add jumprings to attach to a single loop clasp. dscn1605

This one has been such a hit, that the bright silver version is already out of stock!! Check out the other versions before they’re gone! Antique Silver Antique Copper Gunmetal
