AR & RING SIZES
GSG can be made with smaller AR’s than Half Persian 3-1 Sheet 6; down to about 4.2. Larger AR’s will simply make the chain more open and easier to weave. 20awg 1/8″, 18swg 3/16″ and 16swg 1/4″ rings work at the tight end of the scale.
Metric sizes – approximately 0.8mm wire/3mm ID; 1.2mm wire/4.8mm ID; and 1.6mm wire/6.5mm ID.
Note: If you use the above ring sizes you cannot use preclosed rings – instead you’ll need to weave one ring at a time. If you use a higher AR you can use preclosed rings.
TUTORIAL COLOR SCHEME
New rings are gold, old rings are steel.
Step 2: Pass a ring up through the eye. It should go above the open ring from the previous step.
Step 3: Preclose 2 rings and put them on an open ring. Pass the open ring down through the eye from the previous steps. Arrange the preclosed rings to form another () eye.
Step 4: Pass an open ring up through the eye from the previous step, and up and around the eye from Step 1.
Step 5: Repeat Steps 3 and 4 until the chain is the desired length.
