Instructions:
1. Separate the antique copper and antique gold chain links. The sample bracelet uses 72 links, 37 antique gold links and 35 antique copper links. *Using two pairs of pliers to separate the links reduces the amount of wasted chain versus cutting the chain apart.
2. Cut (3) 15” lengths of suede cord.
3. Use a ribbon end to gather one set of suede ends together.
4. Braid the cords approximately 3/4”, be sure to keep the braid tight and small.
5. Thread on 13 chain links, alternating colors, onto the braid. See the illustration.
6. Begin braiding the body of the bracelet. Thread a chain link onto the cord being braided. Repeat for each cord as it’s being braided, alternating the chain link colors. The sample bracelet has 4 1/4” braided with links.
7. Braid the cords in another 3/4” tight small braid section.
8. Thread on the 13 chain links, alternating the colors.
9. Trim the remaining cord approximately 1/4” past the last chain link from the previous step. Attach the ribbon end.
10. Use 4mm jump rings to attach a toggle clasp end to each ribbon end.
