Stacking bracelets is a trend that I personally hope is around to stay for a while. When it comes to necklaces, I prefer them to be simple and dainty, but not with bracelets. I tend to wear lots of them stacked together. This bracelet is so quick and easy (hence the name) you could easily whip up several in under an hour!
4in – Rhinestone chain (I used the 5mm, but you could use any size)
6in – 2mm Satin Cord
2pc – 3mm inner diameter Decorative Crimp Ends
1pc – Toggle Clasp, I used 17BR518
2pc – 6mm jump rings
24in – Supplemax Monofilament Cord
G-S Hypo Cement (I love the precision applicator for projects like this.)
1) Attach the decorative end crimp to the cord using the How-To I shared yesterday. (Images 1, 2, and 3)
2) Tie off one end of the monofilament to the satin cord using a simple square knot. Leave a tail of at least 2 inches. (Image 4)
3) Place your rhinestone chain against the stain cord and wrap the first link 5 times with the monofilament. (Image 5)
4) Begin lashing the rhinestone chain to the cord, wrapping the monofilament between each link.
5) When you reach the end, wrap 5 times around the last link and then wrap back up where you started. This will create a criss-cross patter with the monofilament on the satin cord. (Image 6)
6) Wrap the monofilament a couple extra times around the first link and secure the two ends of the monofilament together. Snip the ends and cover them with a small dot of glue. (Image 7)
6) Use your jump rings to attach the clasp to the decorative crimp ends and you are done! (Image 8 and 9)
See? So simple! And there are so many colors of satin cord to chose from you should pick up a few to create a variety! The green bracelet above was created by making 6 simple overhand knots with a silver spacer in between. The clasp is attached using the decorative end crimps from yesterday’s tutorial.
Hope you all enjoyed this tutorial. Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!
