Profile 45

Description: Sandworm Chain is Full Persian 6 in 1 Chain with Box 4 in 1 Chain surrounding it and connected to each section. The rings of the Box 4 in 1 Chain lay opposing the rings of the Full Persian 6 in 1 Chain. If the rings lay in the same direction, the weave is called Sandworm Lock Chain because there would be an AR lock feature. Sandworm Chain is less rigid than Sandworm Lock Chain, but is still a naturally rigid weave. >6.80 AR is needed for enough flexibility to make a bracelet. Sandworm has 4 sides. Opposing sides are the same. The picture sample is made with stainless steel and uses 1 ring size: 16swg 13/32" rings are 6 in 1 or 8 in 1 with 7.03 AR.
