I'm dying to make a slave bracelet/handflower but I have a few questions on how to go about making one.

How do I measure my hand for a slave bracelet/handflower?
If I were going to make a slave bracelet/handflower for someone else, how do I measure for them?

Last but not least, list as many tutorials/tips/how-tos you can find regarding the construction of slave bracelet/handflowers. The only thing I can't do are the ones in chainmaille because I don't know how to.

Thank you!
april again

Most handflower bracelets I have seen are chainmaille Sad

I would assume that if you would going to do one strung/beaded, the wrist measurement would be the most important one..once that was right I would then use wire wrapping, simple loops or wrapped loops, to make the chain to go around your finger(s)..

Ive found this maybe it will help?

I realized I forgot these as well:
They are for feet but I dont see why the same process couldnt be used for your hands.

Go to Maille Artisans International League:  http://www.mailleartisans.org/weaves/

They have a zillion tutorials on several weaves and projects.  I learned how to do chainmaille through these guys!
