DIY Statement Bracelet: How-to
1. Tie two pieces of chain together.
Tie together the two pieces of chain with a double knot. Your two chains should be the same size links so they match up when you are weaving rope.
2. Weave together first links of chains.
Start by weaving together the first link of the chains.
3. Add in rhinestones.
Place the rhinestones in between the two pieces of chain and begin weaving all three.
4. Continue weaving.
Continue weaving down the chains, pulling the rope tightly between each link.
5. Remove extra links.
Using your pliers, remove any extra links so all three chains line up. Tie a double knot at the end.
6. Add closures.
Tie the closures on each end. Trim excess rope.
7. Wear it!
Fasten around your wrist and to create a great mixed metal look!
