Fuchsschwanz / Silver Links

The Fuchsschwanz / Silver Link Chain captivates with its unique design, which has a technical yet delicate character.

Each solid silver link is handmade by the artist Franziska Schweizer.

For one link, about one gram of 1.2 mm thick square silver wire is bent into a circle with pliers.

After that, the circle is soldered to connect both ends.

Ground & Polish
The soldered joints are then ground and buffed with felt and cotton polishers in combination with a high-gloss finishing paste.

Once the circle is polished, it is bent into its final shape.

The finished links are then hung into each other and joined with an S-Shaped-clasp. In total, about 6 meters of silver wire are required to make one Link Chain.

Each Fuchsschwanz / Silver Link Chain is one of a kind and an piece of art that elevates any look.
