Jewelry DIY: Chain Woven Bracelet - Bracelets

Supplies:

6 to 7 inch curb chain, in either gold or silver.
At least 2 yards of suede lace.
A glass bead (make sure the hole is big enough to fit the lace you are using)

Braided Bracelets

STEP 1: Take 1 yard of suede lace and loop it through the end of the chain.

STEP 2: Leave about 12 inches on one side and the remaining longer piece of lace on another. Secure the suede lace securely with a regular knot.

STEP 3: Align the shorter piece along the right side of the chain.

STEP 4: With the longer piece, start threading the suede lace into each link of the chain and securing the shorter piece of on.

STEP 5: Keep going until you reach the end of the chain and secure it with a knot.

Braided Bracelets with Chevron-style Pattern

STEP 1: Follow the standard weaving pattern to start.

STEP 2: Next, weave the other side following the opposite direction of how you started.

STEP 3: This will create a mirror-image pattern.

Braided Bracelets with Diagonal Stitch Design

STEP 1: Follow the standard weaving pattern to start.

STEP 2: Next, weave the other side exactly the same way as you did on the first side.

STEP 3: This will create a design that that is exactly like the first half of your bracelet.

STEP 4: Once you’ve gone through the entire chain, be sure to secure the suede lace tightly with a knot. Take your bead and loop the strands of suede lace through the hole.

TIP: You can use shiny or matte metal chains in gold or silver and mix and match it with your choice of lace–from delicate silk ribbons to more textured suede options or even twine. Source
