That Celtic Leather Chain Belt

I'm restoring and doing the leather work on a pair of Viktor Berbecucz Celtic swords and I'd like to use some of this useless strip of elkhide that I've had lying around forever to make up a belt like that one we've all seen on the statue; the one that looks like a chain of leather links.

I made a model once out of what were basically figure-8's, folded in half so the hole line up, and the next link through them and so on...but does anyone know if this is the right way to do it?  Could I get the same effect by just folding leather washers in half?

Hi do you have a pic or reference to what your talking about as it would avoid misunderstandings...


"And the four bare walls stand on the seashore. a wreck a skeleton a monument of that instability and vicissitude to which all things human are subject. Not a dwelling within sight, and the farm labourer, and curious traveller, are the only persons that ever visit the scene where once so many thousands were congregated." T.Lewin 1867
