You will love the way this pretty bracelet feels on your wrist and the way it matches almost everything in your wardrobe with its versatile gold, silver, and copper color scheme.
Instructions
NOTE: If you purchase just 1 more foot of each of the 3 SilverSilks lengths and 1 more pair of pinch end caps (FCR-7032) then you can make a matching necklace. The necklace is project N702 and can be found here.
  1. To make this project, please watch the video: How to Use SilverSilk Pinch End Caps and Make a Bracelet.
  2. The entire project is demonstrated in the video above.
  3. If you plan on making the necklace too, then start by making the necklace and use your leftover SilverSilk to make the bracelet - do not pre-cut any of your lengths.
