Introduction: Triforce Chainmaille Pendant

This is my first tutorial so it isn't the best but please bare with me :-) As a lover of The Legend of Zelda it seemed only right to finally have a Triforce of my very own. I've found a lot of other LoZ fans I've met really like it too. This pendant uses the helms weave and while it can be fiddly it is easy to pick up. Hope you like it!!

Step 1: Materials

2x Chain Nose Pliers (or jump ring opener) 81x Large Jump rings (I don't have the size as these were a gift) 78x Small Jump rings

Step 2: Start First Row

Connect four large jump rings together using two small jump rings between each one.

Step 3: Captured Ring

Lay a large jump ring over the joining sets of two. Thread another large jump ring through the joining sets above the captured ring.

Step 4: Repeat Steps 2-3

Repeat above steps but instead make rows of three and two.

Step 5: Connect Rows

Thread a small ring through all the pairs of large rings (not the captured ring), in all rows. Once the other rows are connected add two large rings layered on top of each other to create the peak.

Step 6: Repeat

Repeat steps 2 to 5 two more time so you have three triangles.

Step 7: Connecting the Triangles

Once you have all the triangles made up attach one bottom corner to another using two small rings. This part can be fiddly but thread a captured large ring around the small rings and in between the large corner rings.

Step 8: Finishing Up

Repeat step 7 two connect the tips of the base triangles to the bottom corners of the third/top triangle. Finally add two small rings to the top of the upper triangle so you can attach it to a cord or a keying :-). You are now done!

Aww that's such a cute idea! I've always wanted to make something triforce since I'm a real nerd but have nothing of LoZ. I was thinking, what if I attached chains to its corners in such way to make a slave bracelet? Hmm I think I'll try it. Awesome ible!

This looks nice! As this is small, would be a good exercise for beginning chainmaillers I guess?

I'm glad you like it :-)! I have only recently started to make chainmaille so I would say yes, it is pretty good for beginners :-)
