Project Instructions

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.
