GAUGED Chainmaille Spine Earrings
These long, detailed earrings are made from a chainmaille pattern I developed about 20 years ago. This pattern resembles a spine and is made up of 7 different sizes of small jump rings, tapering to a tiny piece of small curb chain at the bottom.
The spines hang from hoops that can be worn through a gauged tunnel, on their own as ear weights, or through standard piercings. Total length of the earring from the top of the hoop is 3.75".
Hoops open up with a hinge at the bottom and snap securely shut. Inner diameter of the hoop is about 14mm or 9/16" and will easily fit through most tunnel sizes. Be sure to check the width of your tunnels before purchasing. Pictured in third photo with 9/16" tunnels that are 3/8" wide. Tunnels not included. Stainless steel.
Each earring weighs 7 grams. Some earrings in this collection may be a bit heavy for those with standard piercings.
This earring is also available on a standard French hook in the PURE Collection.
