This bright bracelet is sure to add some color to your summer accessories!
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)
Scissors
Jewelry pliers

    How to:
    1) Cut the cords into 3 pieces (2 of each color) 12 inches long each.

    3) Add jump rings and clasp to the knots with the pliers. Trim the cord if needed.
