Handmade Snake Chain - Inspiring Jewellery


The Bali Snake Chain is a type of jewelry chain that is popular for its elegant and sophisticated design. It is named after Bali, the Indonesian island known for its expert artisans and traditional jewelry-making techniques.

The Snake chain features closely interlocked links that create a smooth and flexible surface. The Bali Snake chain builds on this classic design by incorporating Balinese elements such as intricate beading and wirework, resulting in a unique and distinctive style.

Bali Snake chains are usually crafted from high-quality metals such as sterling silver, gold, or platinum. They are often used to create bracelets and necklaces and can be combined with a variety of pendants and charms to achieve a customized and personalized look.


One of the oldest symbols of mythology, the snake represents goodness, wisdom, and eternal love. But, in contrast, a snake symbol can also represent passion and sexual desire. This duality sparks intrigue in its allure, making it one of the most popular and timeless jewellery motifs.

Long ago, people thought snakes were wise and could heal and change. They also believed snakes could protect them from bad things. Nowadays, some people still like to wear snake-shaped jewelry because it looks fashionable.

Snake chains are a type of chain made by weaving links together at an angle. This makes the chain lay flat and look nice. The links are joined tightly together to make a strong chain. Some are made by machines and are inexpensive, while others are made by hand and are fancier and cost more money.

This way of knitting has different names, like rope or tonda, but a snake is the most famous. It's popular because it looks like genuine snakeskin, which is what the accessory is trying to look like.


There are two kinds of snake chains: flat and puffy. Both types can have links that aren't round, like oval, square, or rectangular links. These links look really cool, especially on great accessories.

Size and thickness may vary too. For example, men's chains are usually much more massive and heavier than more delicate women's chains.



On 2 February 1856, Bryce Grey Nichol from Rhode Island was granted a patent for 'A new or improved method of manufacturing those kinds of ornamental metallic chains known as 'Braxiliaa' or 'snake* and other like patterns.'

Gold snake chain necklaces are popular year after year; the beautifully round shape and the sexy look appeal to women worldwide. The snake chain consists of ring-shaped links that form a flexible round chain with a lovely shine. The sleek design and the chain's movement resemble a snake, giving the chain its iconic name.

In 1857, George Haseltine, a London patent lawyer, applied for a patent for a snake chain manufacturing process developed by E H Parry of Rhode Island. The machine replaced the work of seventy operatives and produced perfect snake chains. An improvement on this machine was patented in the UK in 1860.

The story of snake jewels begins during the classical era. The ancient Greeks wore gold snake rings, armbands, and bracelets. During the period, snakes were associated with the goddess of love, Aphrodite. Her bracelet represented seductive beauty.

  2. Then, dry the chain thoroughly with a soft cloth to remove any moisture
  3. Use an ultrasonic cleaner and a cleaning solution that is PH-balanced and ammonia-free. This will eliminate surface dirt, oil, lotion, and perfume.
  4. If you are cleaning a rope chain or snake chain where dirt might get into the crevices, use a soft toothbrush to get into those hard-to-reach areas.


If you want to clean a silver chain, the best way is to use warm water, washing up liquid, and a small bowl:

  1. Mix the liquid until bubbles form.
  2. Put the jewelry in the water and let it soak for 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the jewelry, rinse it with water, and let it dry.



Snake chains are pretty durable. They're often made of rigid materials like sturdy brass to withstand wear and tear. Plus, the links are usually interlocked, making them even more breaking-resistant.

Snake chains are a popular rounded chain because they look smooth and flowy. Each link has a point in the middle, and when you put them together, it makes a pattern that looks like snake skin.
