Is the Good Art jewelry oxidized? Or, is that the patina it developed over time?

How is your Henson cage bracelet holding up, Fok? I was thinking of getting that or the bead wrap from them, but in the product picture it looks like some links aren’t completely joined like some other brands you’ve criticized. The bead wrap links look even more fragile to me, and I just know my daughter is going to hang from anything I put on my wrist...It's nice, but I both have and have handled Werkstatt Munchen jewelry, and I can already see the structural flaws in that piece. It's too bad, because it's a nice piece otherwise. But at their prices, I find fundamental structural issues unacceptable. In the same category,Tobias Wistensen is just better made. I will say though, that for just excellent finishing, that Good Art is one of only a few outfits I know who can be said to be in the same class as a Cartier or an Hermes.
Hmm, I was afraid of that. Thanks for the review. I was looking at the Model 10 and the Hermès, but I guess they are twice the price for a reason. I know you said the chaine d’ancre looks better beat up, but I still can’t see myself wearing it. I’ll probably end up going with Tobias Wistisen or sticking with GA.The joins are disappointing. The problem with very small outfits. They lack the equipment to get the temperatures high enough to basically have no practical difference in the strengh of the joins vs anywhere else on the links.
I really love the design, but because of the natire of small makers, the soldered joins are always weaker than what an Hermes, or a Good Art (owns its onw factoru) can do.
They actuall did full joins for me, but some of them just broke with not a lot of flex.. The cage is still very strong, but it was sport of a bummer.
If you really want jewelry that you could basically belay using, try the Hermes Chaine d'ancre in the GM or TGM size. I have both, and wear the GM a lot more, as the TGM is very heavy (over 110 g bvs about 75 g) and is pretty blingy. The GM size is great.
I feel like I have to buy the Hermès now if only just to see why you love it so much. I know nothing about Hermès sizing though. Is GM the medium size? What is the T in TGM? Is it this model?Good Art is pretty great. However, the lock is not as tight or strong as some people think - and I had a size C, which I returned for credit. I could easlly pull on the lock and get it open. I know that it's touted as super strong, but the Hermes style closure, and especially the specific Hermes T bar closure, which is incredibly beefy, is wwwwaaay stronger. If you need something a little girl can hang off of, that's the bracelet for you. I Would wager that you could do curls with her hanging with no damage to the closure. I run my stuff rough, and I've not seen a silver piece of jewelry that is so tough, from a company hardly known for toughn products.
I have some Tobias Wistensen, and like it.
