Dragon scale chain maille- layers of jumprings
Summary: Dragon scale chain is made up of many layers of jumprings and is incredibly flexible.We will use three jumpring sizes to create the chain weave. Try it out with us.
Step 1: Make the first two layers
1st, connect 6 pink jumprings with golden jumprings.
2nd, deposit an orange red jumpring over the first golden jumpring and first two pink jumprings.
3rd, add a pink jumpring through the first golden jumpring.
4th, deposit an orange red jumpring over the second golden jumpring.
5th, add a pink jumpring through the first and second golden jumprings.
6th, repeat the above steps until reach the last jumpring.
This is then side view of the chain:
Step 2: Insert golden jumprings
1st, Put a golden jumpring through the first orange red jumpring.
2nd, place another golden jumpring through the first two orange red jumprings.
3rd, continue adding jumprings until you have reached the last orange red jumpring.
4th, insert a golden jumprings through the pink jumprings in the top layer.
Step 3: Make more layers
1st, deposit an orange red jumpring over the first golden jumpring in the newly-formed layer.
2nd, add a pink jumpring through the golden jumpring.
3rd, continue adding like instep1.
Step 4: Repeat the above steps until you get desired length
Done! This chain can be widely used. Hope you have mastered this chain technique.
