Finished my “Ruffles” chainmail bracelet today! As you can see, the rings were much smaller than my first attempt at chainmail (see second pic). The other pattern used rings that were 1/2” in diameter, and had ~9 rings per inch. This pattern used rings ranging from 3/36” in diameter (silver) to 3/32” (light and dark blue), and the pattern uses ~45 rings per inch, bringing this bracelet to a total of around 260 rings. (!!)
It took me two days, but I’m really happy with how it turned out, especially since this is my first time making chainmail from a pattern. Do let me know what you think! c:
Note: I’m thinking of taking commissions for custom chainmail bracelets/earrings for ~$10-20 when I set up my Storenvy next week. Would anyone be interested? (No obligations, of course; I’d just like to gauge interest before investing in supplies.)
