It has 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 out of a thick 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 these are being made
First the string is wired around a stick and sawed into rings by hand. 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/Kings Chain. You need to be very good with your hands to be able to put these together in this special pattern. It takes many hours doing a part of this chain. So the price is set depending on how long chain you need and how much silver that is being used. You choose the length.
This is a chain with a lot of work behind so delivery time is always a few weeks. The chain is made after the order especially for you so no chain will be exactly like another. I will mail you to let you know when you can expect your jewelry.
