Make your own stylish chain and suede laced bracelet – looks great on its own or stacked with other bracelets. The color combinations are endless!
It’s been a while since I’ve made any new bracelets. I realized recently that I didn’t have many gold bracelets, especially that I could use for layering. I had pinned a bracelet similar to this chain and suede laced bracelet several weeks ago from Yes Missy which felt like a good summer bracelet I could make to mix in some gold into my arm candy wardrobe.
- 14 inches of chain – separated into two 7 inch lengths
- 24 inches of suede cord
- Jump rings and clasp of your choice
- Hot glue gun
You’ll want to measure the chain to your wrist size. I have a fairly small wrist and I used two chains slightly shorter than 7 inches.
Start by threading your suede cord through the top link of each chain. Make sure your ends are even.
Cross the suede lace behind the chains and thread each end through the opposite side chain through the back.
Then take one end and cross over to the opposite side on the front and through the next link. Do this on both sides with the laces crossing over each other.
Continue this pattern doing the back and then the front, until you’ve laced all the way to the bottom of the chains. Try to keep your chain links flat. I’ll be honest, I had to take mine out and redo it twice before I got it right. Luckily it’s a pretty quick process though.
When you get to the end, snip your lace cord and glue the ends together with a glue gun.
Use a jump ring on one around the two end links. On the other end use a jump ring to go around the end links and attach your clasp.
I have some chain left, so I see at least one gold chain bracelet idea in my future. Now, off to plan my outfit for work tomorrow around wearing some gold accessories!
