im finding your question somewhat confusing. do you want to make a chain to hang the pendant? are you trying to trap or wrap it in maille? what size and type of kids bangle is it?

Since Roundmaille is just a tube of European 4 in 1, then you could make a strip of E4 wide enough to go around the bangle and then seam it up.


Craft isn't cheaper than therapy, but it's more fun.

since there is a 6cm hole in it and its only a matter of millimeters to bridge why are younot just saving yourself the agrivation and bolting a ring or two through the middle.?you could just save the creative energy to make a nice chain for it.

you could connect a couple rings through the hole of the bangle and move on to figuring out what chain you want to make for it.

round, inverted round and 3/4 persians are the most common ways I have seen a wrap. people have been experimenting more with byzantime segments lining the edge lately.

Oooo you've gotta watch you I.D.'s and your wire gauge. That weave can have some unforgiving tolerances, but it would look lovely. Last 2 links would be a bitch to set too!

Fun to try though.
