Multiple Chainmail Squish Balls
These are some squishy chianmail balls I have made.
While technically dodecahedrons, they mostly flop into a ballish shape.

The top left and bottom two are both the same link count, although there is a minor difference in aspect ratio (AR) between the tiny ones and the big one.
If my math is right, all three have ~786 links. This is due to using 3x the links on the 'flat' side, as to make it squish instead of flat.
The top left is using stainless steel 18ga 3/16" links.
The bottom left is using stainless steel 20ga 1/8" links.
The bottom right is using titanium 20ga 1/8" links.... and is soooo light!

As for the top right, this was an imperfect experiment.
The previous experiment, using 20ga 3/32" links 1x on the flat side, was niether self supporting nor squishy... it just kind of dimpled in an unsatisfactory way and you couldn't undimple it... 
Anyway, the one pictured used 20ga 3/32" for the linkages, and 20ga 1/8" 2x for the flats.
It turned out without the ability to support is self at all, so I put a 1" wood ball in it.
It is amusing to play with, but there isn't as much fidgeting possible with it.

I'll see about adding a youtube video so you can see them in their full glory.

Not pictured is another 18ga 3/16" ball made in aluminum, which I have given to a friend :)

Scalemail Flower - Dodecahedron
After making the scalemail flower, I wanted to see what else I could while using the flower as a unit.

Made with sixty brushed clear anodized small scales, 150 5/16" 18ga rings, and 132 3/16" 18ga rings.

Originally I attempted to connect the flowers with the 3/16" rings, but I had no room for fit that last two flowers.
After running out of room I reworked it to use the 5/16" rings, though It is a bit floppy.

Scalemail Flower - Ornament
This is a little flower I cobbled together after a quick look at similar flowers on the interwebz.
I suspect I haven't used the optimal ring sizes as it does lay flat instead of having a slight curl -- but I worked with what I got.

Uses five brush clear anodized small scales, ten 5/16" 18ga rings, and sixteen 3/16" 18ga rings... With another 5/16" and four 3/16" for the chain it can hang on.
A few of my friends said it would make a good key chain, though it is a bit large for my tastes.
Now, if I got some tiny scales, that would be a different story.

Scalemail Snake - Relaxing in Tree
Scalemail snek relaxing in a tree
I've been working on it for quite some time now >_<
It is approximately two meters long, and weighs 1.226 kg.

It uses approximately 1911 scales, approximately 4340 links.
For internal support there are 51 wood balls, one part of a wood dowel with two edges tapered.
And to top it off there are two beads for eyes.

You can find more pictures of the snek [here]
