Emerging Jewelry Designer To Watch: Joshua Diliberto

Joshua creates sophisticated jewelry with a sexy, unusual twist. He applies his artistic background to create striking chainmaille pieces using silver, stainless steel, titanium and rubber.

I first found Joshua's bracelets on Etsy. These aren't your typical chain bracelets. The one I actually purchased is called "vertebrae" (the picture on the right). This bracelet is made of approximately 85-95 individual rings. They are saw cut and put together with no gaps, which translates to a softer feel and no hairs getting caught in the rings.

I was surprised at how light it feels and really love the closure; a "D" shackle that screws securely shut.

Joshua's work is quite stunning.  Look at the pictures below.
