    Help with dragon scale

    alrighty folks, i'm working on a pair of dragon scale bracers for a friend. he wants black stainless rings used. i placed an order using a suggested ring size of 18g 1/4 and 16g 3/8. now while these work fairly well, he has expressed that the pattern was "kinda small looking". can anyone suggest larger ring sizes that i might use for the pattern? i dont mind switching to Alum if i need to for the sizes. id like to use a 14g 1/2 or 12g 1/2 for the large rings if i can. thanks for your help
  2. got about a week till i get my order. can't freaking wait!!! :)

    current project

    right now i am taking any colors that i can get. i haven't decided on an inlay pattern yet so i don't know what i'll need. i figured once i finished the coat id see what i had and go from there. right now i have a sandwich baggie about 1/3 full of red, blue, orange, light green, and dark green. if any one would like to suggest an inlay pattern id be happy to hear it.

    yeah, i had a lot of help collecting the tabs thankfully. i couldn't have done it by myself. it is my plan to weave a pattern of colored tabs into the back but it is taking supper long to collect the colored tabs.

    here ya go. i bought a bunch of these. they're actually bracelet pieces but i cut the loops off the back of it. i had made another one similar to this one but with the butterfly on the center, not hanging from it. sadly i dont have a pic of that one.

    haven't posted anything in some time, but here's some pics of what i've been working on. i got the beads for these from an uncle of mine that works at Eastman. they're UV and only change from white in the sun light. i think they look sweet. this is the first little purse i've made. it measures about 4-1/2"x5-1/2". i was told by a friend of mine that its just the right size for going out. for most of these i used 18g 3/16 alum and rubber rings.
