Maille DNA Bracelet 2.0

I like my DNA maille bracelet well enough, but I thought there was still room for improvement. Or just room for variation. I sat down about a week ago and put together another one, this time with smaller connecting jump rings. As a result, the bracelet retains its spiral shape much better than previously, and has a smoother silhouette overall. (I think the original one looks quite "spiky" somehow.) On the left is the first bracelet; on the right is the second.

I didn't think I'd like the two-tone look that much, but I'm surprised to find that I don't really notice it!


  1. These are so cool! I like them just by themselves, but I think they'd make badass charm bracelets too!

    1. You could get DNA charms for that extra "yo dawg" level. Or be super nerdy and get charms with the different base (in actual base pairs). Possibilities....!
