Trichinopoly for auction

Completed Viking Knit / Trichinopoly chain for the Avacal auction

Completed Viking Knit / Trichinopoly chain for the Avacal auction

 

I have a very simple Viking Knit chain to show off today, made of 24 gauge silver-plated copper wire, drawn down to approximately 7 mm in diameter. It’s finished off with a hand-made silver-plated copper (18 gauge) ring closed with spiral-wrapped ends, and was made using the single-knit technique.

I’m donating it to the Avacal Online Auction with proceeds going towards the Kingdom travel and general fund. If you’re interested in bidding, click the link and check it out! (Along with all the other beautiful things made by members of the soon-to-be kingdom.) The specific link to my necklace is here: Trichinopoly Chain

It is 25 ” / 63.5 cm long, including the ring. I made it this length so that it would fit over large heads, but not hang TOO low. The length means it doesn’t need an additional (non-period) clasp. It can be shortened, if you unwrap/open the ring.

The dressform I’ve photographed the chain on is a child-size form, in the photo above I’m wearing the chain. (and photoshopped out my scar..)

The photo above shows the chain with a pendant clipped on; I’m not offering up the pendant with the auction, it’s just for illustration purposes.
