New in Shop: Little Black Earrings & Stretch Diamond Finger Armour

This week, Athena's Armoury is unveiling a few new items!

Little Black Earrings
These earrings have such a simple elegance that they could easily go from day to night.

Made with mini Jet briolettes and sterling silver findings, they measure 1 1/4" from the top of the ear hook to the bottom of the bead.

Little Black Earrings are available in Athena's Armoury Artfire Studio and Etsy Shop.

Stretch Diamond Chain Maille Finger Armour
Traditionally, armour of old was made using riveted stainless steel rings. This finger ring is a modern take on it by updating an ancient chain maille weave using stretchy rubber rings.

The weave used in this piece is Japanese 12-2 in a diamond pattern using bright aluminum and rubber rings. The bright aluminum jump rings were coiled and cut by hand by me. The diamond is 1 1/4" long and just shy of 1" across. One size fits most.

The Stretch Diamond Chain Maille Finger Armour in bright aluminum is available in Athena's Armoury Artfire Studio and Etsy Shop. It is also available as a stretchy mixed metal piece (bright aluminum & copper) in the Etsy Shop and Artfire Studio.

I also am in love with your photography. I'm jealous.

Thank you both! I love that little mannequin. Picture taking is admittedly not one of my favorite aspects of online selling so I'm continuing to work on it.
