First I've made a kind of heavy leather coat.
Then, I've marked lines on this volume with a fine needle to have the good direction for the links. ( You can also see the start of the next step ).

Then, using a fine needle, I started to properly sculpt each ring ( left buttock ).
And then, you've got that!!!!
Everything is in the direction of the wrist, and how you define the volumes with your needle.
I've used this method for the result. I wanted to keep the shape of my first volume, that's why I've chosen the engraving way.
Thanks. I prefer your method, though the "joining the rings" looks a little complicated for me.
