A combination of metals

Viking sterling silver weave cuff with Greek metalcaps ~ center bead is copper and silver ~ silver beads on either of the center bead with that wonderful sterling swivel clasp.

This cuff fits a medium to small wrist.  It measures approx 7 1/2 to 8 inches.  It is made to fit as to not slip down the hand. And ~ with the silver wire inserted into the weave it can be molded to your wrist shape.

So many possibilities with the Viking weave.  I've read that this weave was used in ancient Egypt and was actually used for the trade of goods. 
It's a fun and interesting method of weaving and as mentioned....... endless possibilities...... earrings, rings, on and on.
