Black Bullion Bracelet

PROJECT B8026
Designer: Alexandra Smith
Skill Level: Intermediate
This bracelet combines flattened gold plated curb chain and black faux suede in a striking cross-stitch pattern that is quick and easy to weave.
Instructions
This bracelet fits a 6.5 inch wrist. For a longer bracelet, add additional jump rings to each end when attaching the clasp. In addition to the materials listed, you will need some thread to use with your tying station.
  1. Begin by identifing the centermost link of your 13 inch section of curb chain, and note where the seam on the link is located.
  2. Use two pairs of sturdy flat or chain nose pliers to grip the center link on either side of the seam. Open the link the same way you would open a jump ring to separate the two lengths of chain you will use for your project.
  3. Please watch our video: How to Make a Cross Style Chain Woven Bracelet. In this video, you will see from start to finish how to create this bracelet using 3mm faux leather and thick flattened curb chain. You will also see how to tie off the cord and attach a clasp.
