Half-Dragonback Ring by brumagem Half-Dragonback Ring by brumagem
NEVER TRY TO HAND-CUT STEEL RINGS. Your saw blades will only snap and dull like crazy I DONT EVEN :iconimseriousplz:

Anyway, I'm still happy with it. It's not quite as showy as my E 4-1 Ring and is much more comfortable to wear.

89 rings, steel 20g 5/32"
1 ring, non-latex rubber 18g 5mm

Thank you! Steel is pretty cool at first, but it warms up very quickly ;)

Oh my god, I can't believe you'd sell something like this for $15. I kind of really really want one...however, I am a destitute college student. If I convince myself that I need one of these badly within the next few days I will note you. If not, the Frugality Fairy won. ): Damn that Frugality Fairy.

That fairy does so much good for our pockets, but makes us feel so much longing :cry:

you use a jewelers frame saw, or a flexshaft saw? I imagine one might have an easier time with the flexshaft; I know mine cuts through just about everything like it's butter at top speed. Also, do you lubricate your rings before you saw them? Not doing that will kill your blades in a jiff :dead:

Inquiries aside I absolutely love this. I've made maille rings for a few people but I've always had trouble finding a pattern outside of dragonscale that I feel would be sufficiently bulky to make me like it, and I'm not up for the challenge of micro dragonmail yet.

I use a jeweler's saw and lube the blade between every so-many rings. I've been thinking about switching to a rotary tool, because even when cutting aluminum the saw is a bit laborious.

Thanks! Have you considered helm chain? It wouldn't be quite as thick as dragonscale, but you could get pretty close...
