    Sizing a steel mesh.

    I assume this style is trim to fit? What's the best tool for cutting the little links?

    Wire cutters or a Dremel cutting disk. Wire cutters are easier to use and give you better control.

    Small electrical dykes work good as well.

    I'll use wire cutters. I have a Dremel but that seems like it could get messy.

    I used a 20" long bolt cutter, one loop at a time. Took a while but the end result was good.

    The last bracelet that I had like this had a base that was around 6.5" that looked like the picture above and then had little links that could be added with screws to it.

    If you notice the "I" shape close to the buckle on this one, this is what I mean:
