This chain has a few different names, but the most common is "kungakedja" (King's chain),"Stenebylänk" (Chain of Steneby) or "Bysantisk kedja" (Byzantian chain). This chain is made of a  silver string. It is made by hand according to very old methods, just like the Vikings did it. These kind of chains have been found among old relics in Viking graves in Scandinavia.

How the chains are made
First the string is wired around a stick and sawed into rings. The tools that is being used is a saw, stick and tongs and the artisan's hands. The rings are put together into a pattern named Steneby/King Chain. You need to be very good with your hands to be able to put these together since the rings are small and you have to hold them in a certain way. It takes many hours doing this chain and the longer it is the longer it takes to make it. So the price is set depending on how long chain you need. 

This is a chain with a lot of work behind so delivery time is always a couple of weeks. The chain is made after the order especially for you. I will mail you to let you know when you can expect your jewelry.
