diy braided chain bracelet (inspired by aurélie bidermann)

January 8, 2013

I’ve been admiring these Aurélie Bidermann bracelets for quite some time. The concept is pretty simple- one strand of the braid gets woven into the chain. I decided to add my own twist on the bracelet by adorning it with gold spikes.

Supplies:

  • Chain
  • Embroidery floss (4)
  • Screw on spikes
  • Jump rings
  • Lobster clasp closure 

 

[Measure the chain around your wrist and cut 2 lengths]
[Using pliers, attach jump rings every 5 links or so to connect the 2 chains]
[Cut the embroidery floss in lengths measuring 2 1/2 times the length of the chain. Tie a knot at the top and sting one the sections through the first chain link]
[Begin braiding the floss. The strand closest to the chain gets woven into the link]
[Once you reach the end, make a knot and trim the ends of the floss so they are even]
[Repeat on the other side of the chain]
[Screw the spikes into some of the openings on the chain]
[Attach the lobster claw closure]
