Persian Dragonscale - Weaving and Joining
Article © MAIL User: ChaosSeraphim

Persian Dragonscale

The rings used in this tutorial are 12 ga (2mm) 1/2 inch galvanized steel for an approximate AR of 4.8. This gives a nice chain that's not too tight or loose.

Weaving Persian Dragonscale

Make an open-hung strip of European 4 in 1 about one and a half times as long as your finished chain.

Connect three outer rings together to make Half Persian 3 in 1.

Continue to edge with HP along the entire edge.

Repeat on the other side while stacking the rings to make a mirror image.

Connecting Persian Dragonscale

Bring the sides of your chain together so the grain of the Euro 4-1 on the bottom matches.

Connect your two sides at the Euro 4-1 while maintaining the grain.
