Give your fashion a hand (or two!) with this quick and simple design. Perfect for using up old pieces of scrap chain, make this bracelet your own by incorporating pieces of chain you may have lying around your work station.
Cut the following lengths of chain: one 1-inch piece of 5mm antique silver-plated textured circular cable chain, one 1-inch piece of antique brass-plated textured oval cable chain and one ½-inch piece of antique copper-plated box rollo chain.
Attach one 6mm antique copper-plated open jump ring to one end of each chain. Connect the silver-plated chain to the pointer finger loop of the Patricia Healey copper arched spiral left hand link. Connect the box rollo chain to the middle finger loop on the left hand link and the textured cable chain to the ring finger loop on the left hand link. Watch our Handy Tip video if you need help using jump rings.
Thread the 14x8mm green aventurine with grommet roundel onto the box rollo chain. Attach the other ends of each chain to the coordinating loops on the Patricia Healey copper arched spiral right hand link using new jump rings.
Measure two strands of antique copper-plated cable chain approximately 1 inch long. You may adjust yours to fit your wrist appropriately. Attach one chain to the larger loop of the left hand link and the other to the larger loop on the right hand link. Since the chain is made up of jump rings, simply open up the closest link as you would a jump ring. Connect the 15x8mm copper-plated trigger clasp to one of the chain ends to finish the bracelet.
