Are you ready for some Spring accessories? I sure am. Today I’m sharing a fun and super easy bracelet that is so cute – and so simple to make!
This would be such a great Mother’s Day gift too – that is just around the corner!
This sweet bracelet is all wrapped up with gold chain and a gorgeous vintage style ribbon. It also has fun little pearls to decorate it. It’s the perfect bracelet for a beginning jewelry project.
So are you ready to get started?
How to make a Ribbon and Chain Wrap Bracelet
- Vintage Style Ribbon
- Open Chain – enough to wrap loosely around your wrist three times
- Small pearls and head pins – 12 of each
- Lobster Clasp
- Needle and Thread to match Ribbon
- Large embroidery needle
Thread the end of the ribbon through the embroidery needle. Thread the ribbon through the links of the chain, moving over and under the links as you go.
Continue threading the ribbon through the chain until you are about 4″ from the end of the chain. Pull the ribbon through so there is a section about 10″ at the end of the ribbon. Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain. Fold the ribbon around to the back side of the chain and sew to itself.
Feed the ribbon through the end of the chain that is left, pulling the ribbon so there is a 10″ piece to match the other end. Tie the two long pieces of ribbon into a bow.
Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain and fold to the back. Stitch as before.
Add all of your little beads to the head pins and form loops at the top. You can find instructions for this in my Jewelry Tips page.
Open up the loops above the beads and add them all along the chain.
Open the chain at one end of the bracelet and add a lobster clasp.
To close the bracelet, loop it three times and attach the lobster clasp to the open ring at the other end of the chain.
That’s all there is to it!
I’d love to see a photo if you make one!
