PROJECT B8051
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Beginner
This sleek bracelet design is great for both men and women. Contrasting wood beads and textured cable chain are strung on 1.5mm leather cord for a clean and finished look.
Instructions
These instructions will make a 7.5 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the amounts of leather, chain, and beads used respectively.
  1. To see how to string your chain links between beads to achieve the look of this design, please watch this video.
  2. Begin by using flush cutters to cut 12.5 inches of 4x5mm textured cable chain. Set aside.
  3. Next, cut one foot of 1.5mm leather cord.
  4. Onto one end of the cord, attach a crimp cord end.
  5. Onto the leather cord, string the following: one black wood bead, one end link of your chain, one natural wood bead.
  6. Using what you have learned in the video, string the leather cord through the sixth link of your chain. Then string on one black wood bead.
  7. Now string the leather cord through the 12th link of your chain. Then string on one natural wood bead.
  8. Continue the pattern described in steps 5 through 7 to string on a total of 11 black beads alternating with 11 natural beads. String each bead between 6 chain links in the same manner as shown in the video.
  9. Once all of your beads and chain links are strung, trim your leather cord to 6.5 inches and repeat step 3 to attach a crimp cord end to the opposite side of your bracelet.
  10. To attach your clasp: Open a jump ring and slide on the loop of one cord end. Also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  11. Open another jump ring and slide on the loop of the opposite cord end. Close the jump ring.
  12. Enjoy your bracelet!
