Mngwa Bracelet

by Amy Leggett


Twist and weave your way through a new chainmaille bracelet creation with a fun edge! Mngwa was named after the large mythical cat creature from Swahili fairy tales. Like the myth’s creature, it was a mysterious beautiful weave that no one had yet discovered.

Note: This weave has a natural twist to it when the edging is added, but it does lay flat on the wrist.

This is a weave by Amy Leggett of The Metalmark.
