DIY: Ribbon wrapped chain bracelet

DSCN3548

This DIY is in solute to Patones newly released colors for fall 2013.  Mykonos blue and emerald-green are just two of the colors you will be seeing this fall.  Since I happened to have some left over chain from my last project, I thought what a great way to get ready for the fall than a chunky bracelet  wrapped in some of falls newest colors!   You can check out the fall color chart below!

Measure your chain around your wrist to get your wrist length. Take pliers and shorten your chain to the correct measurement. Next cut about a 8 inch piece of ribbon. Slide your ribbon downward through your first chain link.

Continue weaving until you’ve reached your last link in your chain.

Cut your ribbon leaving 1 inch length. Apply super glue to the edges to keep the ribbon from unraveling.

When your done you will have a great statement piece to wrap your arm in.  I made two lovely bracelets in just under 10 minutes.  I always say,  a DIY doesn’t have to be complicated to make a statement! Enjoy!
