Chain Maille

I finished up the Dragonscale today. This weave gave me so many problems. I went through so many tutorials that I was about to give up. Then, one wonderful day, Sam and I were in Hobby Lobby, and I picked up a copy of Step by Step wire jewelry. Charlene Anderson wrote the best tutorial for this weave and guess what, I got it, finally. I don't know if I just needed a break from thinking about it but I like to think it was this article that helped me out. If you click on her name it will take you to the magazines website. It is the Dec-Jan issue. So here's the finished product. I used enamel coated copper, which were a total pain to cut and pre ordered GP 4mm.
Then, I got my step daughters watch band done, I just have to wait for the face to come in. So all-in-all it was a pretty good first day of the year.

Thanks for the kind words about the article. Glad you "got" Dragonscale.
