Chic Chick Bracelets Instructions Designed by Cheri Carlson
This fabulous bracelet design allows you to bring color and texture to your jewelry designs. You can use embroidery floss to braid the chains and cupchain together in unique ways. Switch out the colors to suit your style. You're sure to be one Chic Chick with this bracelet around your wrist.
See our How to Braid Cupchain to Chain Handy Tip for help making the half of the bracelet featuring Swarovski rhodium-plated cup chain with 1028 PP32 XILION Crystal and the silver-plated twisted double link with rollo links curb chain. For the other half of the bracelet, refer to our How to Braid to Chain Handy Tip. When creating these two halves, make sure the chain lengths you use in each part have the same number of links.
Use the 925/10 silver-filled 6mm 18 gauge open jump rings to connect the two halves of the bracelet together at each link. See our Jump Ring Handy Tip Video for help opening and closing jump rings.
Attach the smaller links of the chain on the end of the bracelet together using a 6mm jump ring. Add the 925/10 silver-filled 7x13mm lobster clasp with open jump ring to this jump ring.
Attach the 8mm 16 gauge antique silver-plated closed jump ring to the two small links at the other end of the bracelet using a 6mm jump ring. This closed jump ring will serve as the loop for your clasp.
