Ring Size for Roundmaille

Recommended Posts

I'm doing roundmaille with 18g 3.5mm ID rings. It's pretty tight - doesn't want to bend much. Is this going to form a circle (16" choker) eventually or are my rings too thick? I've gotten well into this project and I love the look and would like to finish any way I can. Just afraid my work might be for naught. Please help this newbie! Thanks!!

It really depends on the exact measurements of the rings. Since you already started, the quickest way to estimate if it will work is to put it on a piece of paper in its most curved position, and draw the circle it will make when it is complete. You can make the curve a bit more forgiving by stopping short of a complete circle and finishing it with an extension chain.
