DIY: Chain and Rhinestone Bracelet

Photobucket
Since I got great feedback from my previous DIY bracelet post... I thought that you might like this chain bracelet tutorial that allow you to combine silver and gold! This season is all about more is better when it comes to making a wrist statement!

Photobucket
Here is the step by step:

Photobucket
Supplies: Gold and silver chain from M&J Trimming,
Rhinestone, Black Suede rope, pliers, bracelet closure. Click below for the steps.


Photobucket
Tie together the two pieces of chain (two chain should be the same size links so they match up when weaving rope) with a double knot.

Photobucket
Start by weaving together the first link of the chains.

Photobucket
Place the rhinestones in between the two pieces of chain and begin weaving all three.

Photobucket
Continue weaving down the chains, pulling the rope tightly between each link.

Photobucket
Using your pliers, remove any extra links so all three chains line up. Double knot at the end.

Photobucket
Tie the closures on each end. Trim excess rope.

I found this on Pinterest and am dying to give it a try. Would you mind sharing what size (mm) chains you used? I love the width and think it compliments your watch nicely!

Thanks!

I need to know what millimeter size of chain you used. I can not find it in any craft or hardware store.
