neon fashion bracelet – a tutorial

After doing my last post, I kept going   through my stash and I found some left-over gold chain and neon pink mason line that I had bought for a completely different project (haven’t gotten to that one yet).
So I decided to make a bracelet…

you’ll need:

larger size gold chain
neon mason line from your local home store (about $2-$3)
a lobster clasp
some hot glue
any tool that will help you open the chain links
measure the chain around your wrist take at least three times that length in doubled up mason line (so 6 times the length of your chain).
loop the string through one end of the chain as you can see in the picture.
slide the loop to one side and start threading it through the chain links from underneath. I eventually added a tiny bit of hot glue to the end of my string so it would stop unravelling. that helped tremendously and also finishes off the string nicely.
You want to go through each chain link from underneath and then stick your string back down through the loop you created. It’s really easy to do just hard to explain ;)
At the end of the chain I just tied a double knot and left some extra string. You can of course also cut it all off. Attach a lobster clasp to the other side and you are done. This seriously only takes about 15-20 minutes. Super easy and super cute :)
Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll enjoy and try out these easy tutorials. Any questions, just leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.

    I write a comment whenever I like a article on a site or I have something
    to add to the discussion. Usually it’s a result of the fire displayed in the post I looked at. And on this article neon fashion bracelet – a tutorial – Love Stitched. I was actually excited enough to drop a thought ;) I actually do have a few questions for you if you usually do not mind. Is it just me or do some of these comments appear like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing on other social sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you make a list every one of all your public pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
