How to Make the Dragon Scale

dragon scale bracelet

The Dragon Scale appears to be one of the most popular Rainbow Loom Designs. We wish we made it up:)

We used silver and gold metallic bands for our bracelet. We love the look!

Want to make one? Cheryl Mayberry is the original inventor of this bracelet, so we are including her video tutorial:

      If you were listening, she said she would make another video later when she was finished with that bracelet, that would show how to end it. 🙂

      You bring the bands to the one beside it , so if you made 10 pin, there would be 2 bands on only 5 pins. It’s half of what you started with. Then, put your C or S clips on each of the pins and take it off your loom. Next, connect the clips to the other side of the bracelet.
      Hope this helps!

        Sorry Luv My Loom but that does not make sense! Also, Loom Love or someone else, can you pleeeeeease put a link to the other half? Thank you in advance!!!!

          I’ll try to clarify. So you take the band on one pin and move it to the pin beside it so there are two bands on one pin. Keep doing that so by the time you finish you will have half as many pins as when you started. This might be kinda awkward if you started out with an odd number of pins (I had 13 lol) but just roll with it. Then attach a c clip to both of the bands on the peg. Remove bands from peg. Now attach the c clip to the ends of the other side of the bracelet. Ta da!

    Hey, this video is helpfull, a lot, but the voice is very hard to make out. Is there anything you can do about it?

      @Hades raven
      Try refreshing, sometimes it helps. if not, make sure your volume is all the way up on YouTube (or on the page) or on the computer. but I do agree- she was pretty quiet. Hope this helps 😀

    This is not a very easy video to follow! I struggled with this video from beginning to end! I took my bracelet apart several times and restarted it and the video because she skips steps and does not show you how to do things. She just assumes you know exactly what you are supposed to do just by her telling you what to do instead of showing you. She spends the first 4 minutes explaining that she did this on two forks.
    I found a better video on that was easier to follow and the bracelet looked better than this one!
