Captured pearl bracelet, captive bead jewelry, chain maille bracelet, various metal colors, 6mm beads and pearls, captive pearl bracelet


These captive bead bracelets are all made with colored, anodized aluminum jump rings and feature various types of beads.

These are made with 18g 1/4 jump rings so they are smaller than some of the other bracelets I have made.

These are really pretty and are sure to start a conversation.

These are called captured bead, captive bead, caged pearl, etc. I've seen them called several different things.

They are also called chain maille, chain mail, or chainmaille bracelets. Chain maille is the art of interconnecting rings to make armor or jewelry.

These bracelets are made with lightweight, but sturdy, bright aluminum jump rings. Each jump ring is opened and closed by hand, and a 6mm colorful glass pearl or other bead is trapped in each "cage". They look like they are floating in midair.

6mm glass pearls, gemstones, or acrylic beads were used to make this collection of bracelets.

Available in this listing are:

Black jump rings with purple 6mm glass pearls.

Dark blue jump rings with 6mm Hematite beads.

Gunmetal jump rings with 6mm Hematite beads.

Gold-toned jump rings with cobalt blue 6mm acrylic beads.

Gunmetal-toned jump rings with purple glass pearls.

Brown jump rings with 6mm topaz acrylic beads.

Green jump rings with 6mm yellow acrylic beads.

Pink jump rings with 6mm pink acrylic beads.

Light blue jump rings with dark blue 6mm acrylic beads.

Periwinkle blue jump rings with 6mm blue acrylic beads.

White frosted jump rings with 6mm Hematite beads.

These bracelets are made for my wrist, which is about 7 1/2 inches. I can shorten or lengthen the bracelet you choose to any length, within reason. Please measure your wrist and let me know the length you'd prefer.

Necklaces and earrings to match are available, too. Contact me if you want to discuss ordering something you don't see listed. I'm behind on my listing things. :(

I have finished most of these bracelets with a large-sized lobster claw clasp. A few do have toggle style clasps.
The finished length of the bracelet does include the clasp.

Please note that these bracelets are made with beads, so they do have holes in them. On most bracelets, the holes are not that visible. On some, they are. The beads will turn in the little cage if you don't like the holes to show.

This listing is for one bracelet.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

Custom orders are welcome.
If I have the materials available, I'll be glad to make whatever you'd like.
Usually, there is no charge for changes to an existing item, unless I have to special order something.

Tell me about the prayer beads, malas, and rosaries.

Well, a friend asked if I could make him some rosaries. I tried, and discovered I really enjoyed making them.

After I made a few rosaries, I started researching other types of prayer beads, rosaries, and malas.
There are several types in the shop now, and more will be added.

Please be assured that whichever type of prayer beads I am working on, I make them all with great care and reverence.
Whatever your religion or belief system, I will always be respectful.

What's the difference in all the types of Jade that I see for sale?

It can be a bit confusing! lol

Jade, real Jade, comes in two forms:
Jadeite and Nephrite.
Jadeite is the most desired form of the two.
Both come in many colors. The main difference is the crystalline structure that makes up the stone.

Malaysian, or Malay Jade, is the industry name for expertly dyed, translucent Quartz. It often passes for quality Jade.

Mashan, aka Mountain Jade or Candy Jade, is the industry name for expertly dyed, white Dolemite Marble. It is sought after for its vibrant colors.

The Jade I use is all Malay Jade. (To the best of my knowledge).

Do you do custom orders or will you make substitutions?


Any item made with glass pearls can now be made with Czech faceted glass or Malay Jade if I have the right colors.
Any item can be made with different color beads or metal types.
There may be a slight charge for substitution.
I have eye pins and other findings, rosary parts, and some charms in silver, gold, or gunmetal tone, bronze, and copper.
I do have some stainless steel bangles, findings, and charms.
.925 findings are also available. Inquire for info.
I can change any cross, crucifix, rosary center, charm, etc. to your preference.
I can do any name, phrase, or quote in Morse Code jewelry. (I won't promote hate speech).
In addition to glass pearls, Czech glass, and Malay Jade, I have gemstones, glass, acrylic, and metal beads.

What is Morse Code jewelry?

Well, Morse Code is a character code represented by dots and dashes, originally used to send messages by telegraph, later by flashes of light or by radio. It uses dots and dashes to represent letters and numbers.
Morse code jewelry is jewelry made with words or phrases using beads. I use two colors. One for the dots (.) and another for the (-). Most of my jewelry is made on eye pins using pearls or other beads, and the eye pins are connected much like rosary chain. Each letter, for instance, A, (.-), would have its own eye pin. I like the concept because I can spell out anything...Grandchildren's names, movie quotes, or more subversive messages, and no one will know what they say! Well, I'll know. lol

More Morse Code info

I like being able to wear my Grandchildren's names without worrying about giving away too much knowledge to people that don't need to know.
Or wearing my feelings about a controversial topic or person. I can wear my jeweley to the mall or grocery store, or to a family reunion, and no one knows what it says. Bwahaha. No heart attacks, arguments, or shocking Grandma.
YES, I do custom orders. Your names or phrases, your color choices, etc. Price is based on the number of pearls, spacers, etc. that I use.
I have many items already made and ready to ship.
