Not only are bracelets fun to make but theyre great to give as gifts. This Chain and Rhinestone Bracelet DIY is sure to add some sparkle to your day (or someone else’s).
Supplies for your Chain and Rhinestone Bracelet DIY:
- Large link chain
- Rhinestone trim in 2 sizes
- Embroidery floss – multiple colors
- 1 Closure
- 2 Jump rings
- Fabric glue
Measure your wrist and cut your chain and rhinestone trim to match your wrist measurement.
Once you add your closure it will make your bracelet the perfect length.
Take your larger size rhinestone trim and your embroidery floss.
Cut short 2 inch pieces of each color.
Loop each one around your rhinestone trim and pull tight.
You can use your crochet hook to pull the loops through, it makes it much easier.
Measure your chain or count the stones on your rhinestone trim and add your embroidery thread tassels at equal distances from each other.
Choose one of your embroidery thread colors for your braid.
I used 6 strands approximately 1.5 times as long as my small rhinestone trim.
Tie a knot in one end of your embroidery thread and make a braid the same length as your small rhinestone trim.
Tie a knot at the end of your braid.
With the same color embroidery thread you will sew your braid to your small rhinestone trim.
Start by securing your thread by sewing it back and forth inside your braid.
Then wrap it around your rhinestone trim in between your stones and sewing through your braid.
Do this for the entire length of your bracelet.
Add your closure to your large chain.
I attached one jump ring to each end of the large chain to attach the closure.
Choose a color of your embroidery thread and sew your large rhinestone trim to one side of your large chain and your braid to the other.
If you like you can put a small drop of fabric glue on the ends of your braid and where youve sewn your chain to your rhinestone trims.
This is a great bracelet to wear either alone or stacked with others. It really adds a lot of sparkle and color, with a fun mix of textures.
