Monkey Business Bracelet Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

This simple bracelet has a natural appeal with the combination of the microfiber suede and the handcrafted tribal pendant. Wear it to give your casual wardrobe a fun and stylish accent.

Note: With this design we recommend using nylon jaw pliers. However, if you have trouble with the pliers slipping against the crimp clasp, chain nose pliers can be used with a jeweler's polishing cloth.

Step one: Cut a 4-inch piece of ultra microfiber brown suede. String it through one of the holes on the monkey business porcelain bracelet tab. Place both ends of the suede inside one end of the sterling silver hook and eye crimp clasp. Use nylon jaw pliers to press opposite ends of the crimp together at the rounded bumps to avoid damaging the metal. For added security apply a dab of E6000 adhesive before crimping.

Step two: Repeat step one on the other side of the link to complete the bracelet.
