Woven chain bracelet

DSC_0628

You’ll need:

  • 3 pieces of chain 
  • ribbon, I used a leatherband (about 5 times of the bracelets)
  • some kind of clasp (with jump rings)
  • scissors
  • tape (optional)

Step by step:

1. Cut the chain into 3 pieces, one of the size of your braclet (depends on the size of the clasp), the other two pieces are two links shorter. Secure the longest chain with tape.

2. Put the band through the second link of your longest chain, leaving two equal strands on both sides.

8. Repeat this until you reached the end of your chain. Always be careful not to twist your ribbon.

9. To secure the leatherband put it through the last link twice and knot it on the back.

10. Trime away any excess and put some glue on the knot to secure it.

11. Connect your clasp on the middle chain with your jump rings. If your bracelet is too tight just add another jump ring.
