Instructions

NOTE: Measure your wrist before beginning this project. The bracelet we are going to make will end up measuring just under 7.5" If you need a larger bracelet, cut longer lengths of chain in the first couple steps. If you need a shorter bracelet, then cut shorter lengths of chain.
  1. Begin by cutting 3 identical lengths of antique silver plated textured double round link cable chain, 7" long each.
  2. Next, cut 2 identical lengths of antique copper plated textured double round link cable chain, 7" long each.
  3. These chains actually consist of multiple open links which can be used just like jump rings.
  4. Take your multi-strand tube clasp and separate the two halves. Take one of your silver plated 7" chain lengths and open the two links on the end and connect them to the bottom loop on one side of your clasp. Close the links back up.
  5. On the second loop on the clasp, attach one of the antique copper chain lengths the same way you attached the chain in the last step.
  6. On the middle loop on the clasp, attach another antique silver plated chain length.
  7. On the fourth loop on the clasp, attach your second antique copper chain length.
  8. Finally, on the fifth loop on the clasp, attach your last antique silver plated chain length.
  9. On your table, lay out your bracelet and straighten all the chains so that there are no twists. Attach the other half of the clasp to the chain ends (the same way you connected the first half of the clasp). Make sure your clasp is oriented properly so that it will close when the two halves meet.
  10. Enjoy!
