Step 1 Cut two pieces of chain to fit your wrist using chain cutters.
Step 2 Tie together the two pieces of chain (the two chain should be the same size links so they match up when weaving rope) with a double knot.
Step 3 Start by using the suede cording to weave together the first link of the chains.
Step 4 Place the rhinestones in between the two pieces of chain and begin weaving all three together with the suede cording.
Step 5 Continue weaving down the chains,pulling the cording tightly between each link.
Step 6 Using your pliers, remove any extra links so all three chains line up.
Step 7 Double knot at the end.
Step 8 Tie the lobster claw on at one end, and the jump ring on at the other. Trim excess cording with scissors.
