Chain Wrapped Around Wrist

For my character, I need to create a chain wrapped around his wrist kinda like Kratos from God of War. I already modeled the chain, I just need to have it wrapped around the character's wrist. What is the best easiest way to go about doing this?

There is the 'NecklaceMaker' script which is very useful for this:

create cloth sim with stiffness cranked up. Link chain to cloth.(or better, skin it to cloth) run sim, make cloth invisible.

Re:Chain Wrapped Around Wrist

Depending on how you modeled your chain, you could use the WSM Path Deform. Using a spline to guide your chain might give you some nice control.
