Retired - Rainbow Ladder Bracelet

PROJECT B101
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
This fun, colorful bracelet will brighten any day!
Instructions
  1. Cut five lengths of the bar and link chain 6 ½ inches long. Be sure to leave the smaller links on either end.
  2. Cut one length of the CHA-1013 chain approximately 2 inches long.
  3. Starting with an eyepin, add 4mm bead.
  4. Thread eyepin through the small link at the end of one of the 6 ½ inch chain lengths.
  5. Add another 4 mm bead.
  6. Repeat these steps, adding to the same eyepin: 4mm bead, small link at the end of a 6 1/2" chain, 4mm bead, small link at the end of a 6 1/2" chain, etc.. until you have 6 beads on the eyepin with the five 6 1/2" pieces of chain hanging between them.
  7. When you get to the other end of the eyepin, create a simple loop, but be sure to leave a lot of wiggle room so the beads and chain don't get too cramped on the eyepin (the eyepin should be about 1 ½ inches wide).
  8. Repeat this process, threading your eyepins through the 4mm beads and small links of the five pieces of chain, skipping every other small links. It is very important to thread the eyepin through the same side of each link, so that the bracelet doesn't become tangled.
  9. Using the headpins, make fifteen 6mm bead drops with a simple loop.
  10. Attach one of these to each end of the beaded eyepins, using the proper way to open and close a jump ring. The extra one is for the end of the extender chain.
  11. Add two jump rings to the middle of each end of the bracelet, straddling the middle chain.
  12. To one end, add another jump ring connecting the two, then add a lobster clasp.
  13. To the other end, add the 2 inch length of chain to the two jump rings and finish at the end with the final 6mm bead.
