Scalemail: Gauntlet by NikidaEve Scalemail: Gauntlet by NikidaEve
Made with anodized aluminum (in the mirrored silver and pink scales)
and handpolished stainless steel (in the black and silver)

Done as a gauntlet fashion, with a leather cord that ties up the forearm

linked with handmade galvanized steel links. This is a starter to a set.

Green accent or fully green? I usually sell then 250 a pair, but I can order larger scales that would lower the price or sell them as singles. I really would love p make another set :D

How do you keep it from sliding off?

The inside of the cuff laces all the way up. It's a littl smaller so when everything laces it can be tightened up to fit anyone. If you have someone else help lace it it'll give you the tightest; snuggest fit and it won't slide

First, thank kindly for the favorites and watch! And thank you! I use these little stainless steel scales and link them together with 3/16" diameter links and that size helped keep these scales nice and tight

Surprisingly it does take a good chunk of time but its only 6-7 hours. So it's definitely work, but it's reasonable for the kind of craft I do :) thanks SO much for the interest on my page!!! It's greatly appreciated.

This one itself, won't be for sale. I need a single display piece (eventually a set).
But I WILL commission any set with any color if the client desires. I may have a commission coming up, but they are quick to assemble. I love making these and would love to give the world the option to buy a set. These kinda projects I love doing over and over.

That's understandable, I kinda figured as much. Still, when that slot opens I'll be right in there I think! Just let me know when you ever make another of these and I'll probably buy it <3

Lemme know for sure! I'll need to get some specs from ya (even though they tie up I try to get as many links as possible in a piece so you dont have to tie so much and it covers more) but itd be badass.
and we can be gauntlet buddies :3
I'm not certain if youd wanna match my pink ones but if so I can do that too
or orange!
or green
or purple
or blue
etc :)

Sure thing; I'm happy to oblige :3

And actually, I think the pink is pretty badass! X3 -- if I get one I'd prefer you just make it the same as the one here, even though that's boring <3
