EXPERT level chainmaille project
by Lisa Smeltzer
Dragon's Eye pendant combines two classic chainmaille weaves (Europen 4-in-1 and Half Persian 3-in-1) into one eye-catching final piece. We recommend learning this project using two different base metals and two colors of anodized aluminum rings as shown to make it easier to follow along with the tutorial.
Steady Hands Required: Portions of this piece are extremely tight and difficult to weave. A steady hand is required to create this pendant. You may also wish to have a set of chain nose or other narrow-nosed pliers on hand to close rings in more challenging spots.
Dragon's Eye is a large and hefty pendant -- approx 2.5" (6 cm) across. If you'd like to resize to a smaller pendant, try using our weave resizing widget to determine possible ring sizes based on a smaller wire diameter - http://www.bluebuddhaboutique.com/b3/ring_sizes/transform_weave
Prerequisite: Proficiency in at least 8 chainmaille weaves, including European 4-in-1 (Mesh) - https://www.etsy.com/listing/204471807 and Half Persian 3-in-1 - https://www.etsy.com/listing/231413288/
** If you need the large "X12" rings for the pendant, they can be purchased here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/553389188/ **

Looking so good! Havent been able to make it yet due to eye surgery but it is sitting there waiting for me! ;-)
The customer service was absolutely amazing. I was having some problems understanding some instructions, and she was more than happy to help me understand and explain their ring sizing. It's actually pretty logical. I love the kit!
Wow! Very fast shipping. Pretty colors. The straw color is more of a Champagne color to me. Very light, and doesn't show up well on the Bright aluminum. I should have ordered gold. Live & learn. Strong rings, and the customer service was absolutely amazing.
