Starting out with wire, Duncan Designs
winds and cuts jumprings to create timeless jewelry from classic to contemporary. We honor patterns from the Middle Ages of chain maille to our own invented patterns and styles which we create in Argentium 935 sterling silver wire and gold-filled wire.
Over a decade ago Duncan Designs started taking apart another kind of chain - bike chain. A piece of chain contains four usable parts which we combine with sterling or stainless. Upcycling inner tubes from the tires makes for fun, flexible earrings.
Chain Maille Flat Necklace, 16 Gauge Sterling, $595.
