Stainless Steel Dragonback Chain Mail Bracelet

This is a great weave, if a little time consuming, and makes a nice, thick chain for men’s bracelets.

The basic structure starts as a European 4 in 1, with essentially another layer connected on top.

This one used 19 gauge stainless steel rings with an ID of 5mm (AR 5). Connecting the top layer shortens the initial Euro 4-1 chain by a fair amount, so it tends to use a fair few rings to get a decent length, but looks great and would probably look very cool woven in two different colours.

It’s finished with a small magnetic in gunmetal black, as it’s a closer match to the colour of stainless steel than any of the silvers.
