Knot cord to the end of chain and begin weaving.
Weave all three cord colors through chain. The outside cord colors should weave the same and the inside should be woven in reverse.
Knot all cords around the end of the chain. Trim excess cord on each side, leaving about 3/4" for style.
Open acrylic stone fixtures. Cut 2 strands of wire into 6". Weave one wire through all top holes and the other wire through all the bottom holes of the stone fixtures.
Pull wire through the backside of bracelet and secure with a silver crimp (use flat pliers to firmly close crimp). Cut excess wire closely to the end of the crimp.
