Alexa Bracelet in Hot Pink

PROJECT B665
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This trendy bracelet combines 3 very popular elements: a bright bold color, rhinestone cup chain, and a strong industrial metal chain. Get the look of an expensive designer boutique bracelet but for far less and have a blast making it yourself! Tip: You can make 2 bracelets with the kit supplies.
Instructions
You will also need a ruler, an applicator for your E6000 (such as a thin wire or toothpick) and a binder clip for this project. Please note, the instructions make a 6.5" total length bracelet. If you need a longer bracelet, please adjust your lengths accordingly.
  1. The making of this entire bracelet is shown in the video: How to Tie Rhinestone Cup Chain onto Curb Chain.
  2. Please view the video to see how to make this bracelet.
  3. Tip: You will need 8 inches of cord per inch of finished bracelet that you make. After you measure the amount of cord you need, cut yourself an extra 10 inches just to be on the safe side before cutting.
  4. Tip: Cut your curb chain first to the length you want your bracelet to be. After you cut the chain, count the links. You will want your rhinestone chain to be 2 links longer then your curb chain. For instance, if your curb chain is 24 links long, your rhinestone chain should be 26 links long.
  5. Have fun making these stylish bracelets for you and your friends!
