Instructions

Before you begin, measure your wrist to determine the desired finished length of your bracelet. This bracelet looks nice with a snug fit, so I made the bracelet to my exact wrist measurement, and then the clasp added about 1/2".
  1. Watch the instructional video: How to Make Dragonscale Chain Maille. This video will demonstrate the dragonscale weave that you will use to make this bracelet.
  2. Using silver plated 18 gauge chain maille rings with an inner diameter of 15/64" and brass 20 gauge chain maille rings with an inner diameter of 9/64", make a length of dragonscale chain maille that is four large rings wide and about the same length as your wrist measurement, with both ends tapered down to one ring.
  3. Use one of the brass rings to attach both rings from one end of the bracelet to half of a silver plated magnetic clasp. Use another brass ring to attach both rings from the other end to the other half of the magnetic clasp.
