Double Row Alexa Bracelet

PROJECT B666
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
This trendy bracelet combines 3 very popular elements: a pop of color, rhinestone cup chain, and a strong industrial metal chain. The two rows of rhinestone cup chain add a rich luxurious feel to this popular design.
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 6.75" total length bracelet. If you need a longer bracelet, please adjust your lengths accordingly. General Tip: You will need 8 inches of cord per inch of rhinestone chain that you are tying on. After you measure the amount of cord you need, add an extra 10 inches just to be on the safe side before cutting. General 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 17 links long, your rhinestone chain should be 19 links long.
  1. The technique used to make this 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. The beginning of the video will show you how to tie the rhinestone cup chain onto the curb chain on one side and then the last part of the video will briefly show you how to tie a second piece of rhinestone cup chain onto the other side of the bracelet.
  3. For this bracelet, you will want your 2 rhinestone chain lengths to be 19 links long each and your curb chain to be 17 links long. Each color of your satin cord should be 40 inches long. Based upon what you learned in the video, make your focal with the curb chain tied between 2 lengths of rhinestone chain.
  4. Cut two segments of curb chain, 4 links long each. Connect one of these chain segments to each side of your bracelet focal (from above) using 3 7.7mm jump rings. See photo.
  5. On the end of one of these now attached chain segments, attach a lobster clasp by using a 6mm oval jump ring. The lobster clasp will just attach to the end chain link on the other side of the bracelet.
  6. All done! Enjoy.
