You know you’re in too deep with the DIY projects when you start dreaming about it These days, all I dream about is jewelry – whether it’s work-related or on the DIY front, my life is just jewelry, jewelry, jewelry. I had the idea to try linking layers of chain together with leather cord and the results were even better than I could have imagined.
This DIY is a relatively simple and straightforward one… each took me about 20 minutes to complete. Originally I thought I’d give them to friends for Christmas. Now, I’m thinking I’ll keep them.
- 18-21″ Rose Gold (or any color metal) chain. It should be able to fit around your wrist three times. Just make sure it’s wide enough to thread the cord through the links twice.
- 30″ Leather Cord
- Wire Nippers
- 2 Jump Rings
- Lobster Clasp
Full tutorial after the page break.
Start by cutting your chain into three even pieces. Hook all three pieces to a jump ring.
This is exactly the kind of bracelet I want! Going to try it!
