Piling on stacks and stacks of bracelets is the current trend right now. The more the better. My little wrists were looking quite bare so I decided I needed some arm candy. Not one for the friendship bracelets…..yet!  But I’m in love with chain everything this season.  Check out the tutorial  below.

Wrap a piece a chain around your wrist to see how much you will need. Then take your pliers and adjust all your chains to the correct length.
