Weave a chain necklace with embroidery thread.

On a hunt for coral jewelry I found this bracelet and LOVED it. First thought: gotta pin it. Second thought: I can make that! Which is good because the original cost $395 and is out of stock (people paid that?).

I picked up a chain necklace from Goodwill a few weeks ago for $2 and figured I could braid it with some kind of thread. Funny, I can’t braid hair worth a flip (maybe because I don’t have any) but I can braid jewelry!

Total cost about $3.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Good news: this is the hardest part. Create your thread bundles. You want about 15-18 individual threads in each bundle, and they should be roughly 2-3 times the length of chain.

  2. 2

    Knot the two bundles of thread together at the top, leaving about 1-1.5 inches at the top. Lay the thread out to the left of the chain.

  3. Step 4 3

    Take the thread on the right (the one closest to the chain) and bring it through the chain from underneath.

  4. Step 5 4

    Cross the thread on the left over the right then pull it through the chain from underneath.

  5. Step 6 5

    Continue crossing and threading. Once you get the hang of it, it goes really fast.

    Optional: If you have a wider chain you can bring both threads through each link for a chunkier look. I did some of both on my necklace.

  6. Step 6 6

    Knot the thread when you get to the end and trim the edges.

    I’m not usually a necklace person but I have been having fun wearing this and my turquoise one!
