This bracelet is constructed using a variation of the Barrels weave weave. It is made with anodized aluminum rings in its construction. The aluminum rings have no nickel, lead or zinc so our pieces are hypo allergenic. If you order it in the multi-colored option or need it in a size other than the 7.5" standard size just leave me a note in the "Special instructions to seller" section telling me the additional colors you want and if you need it in a different size. It is no problem to make these to your desires, I just need to know.
