I could see that in a very up-market boutique or designer store - assuming it's a necklace?  You didn't give dimensions...

Er...how much does it weigh?  Is it wearable?

It weighs 90.9 grams, and is 18 inches long, and yes, it is wearable.
This picture should give a better sense of scale.

I guess that's an A4 piece of paper.

It looks very intricate - how long did it take you to make it?

I have been lampworking brosilicate glass since 1993. We just moved from Kitchener, Ontario to Millville, New Brunswick in June. I could never hope to own property in southern Ontario, but prices are better here. However, Millville has a population of 350 people, and I don't have a car. I never had a problem finding sales before.
I can't really say how long the chainmail took to make, because it was a project that just sat on my desk and I worked on it once in a while.

Hi Borolamper, welcome to the board. This is a fascinating piece indeed.   You would probably find a ready market on one of the online auction sites such as eBay.com or SpecialistAuctions.com. You can also offer items for sale in our Glass Market Place here on the board. Hope this helps. :)
