About this project
CraftsJewelry Making •
Ariel Gordon makes loads of pretty, delicate jewelry that I'd love to wear day after day, but the collection of silk friendship bracelets are too easily DIY-ed, especially considering the price tag. If you can braid, you can make it yourself!
For this project, you'll need:
Silk cord, 2 feet of each of the three colors (I have seen this kind of cord at my local bead store, but also available here online)
2 inches of chain (I used 10mm)
Clasp and jump rings (I used 10mm rings)
You Will Need
- Reasonably Priced
1) Cut the cords into 3 pieces (2 of each color) 12 inches long each.
2) Loop three of the cords through the last link of chain, and keeping each color together, braid the cords about 2 inches. Tie cord into a knot. Repeat with remaining cord on other end of the chain.
3) Add jump rings and clasp to the knots with the pliers. Trim the cord if needed.
