DIY Woven Chain Bracelet

Chain link bracelets, with colorful threads woven through them, have been popping up here and there. We adore Aurèlie Bidermann‘s Do Brazil bracelets and thought it was about time we graduate to the ultimate “grown-up” friendship bracelet. With a curb chain bracelet and some embroidery thread, we’ll teach you how to make your own woven chain bracelet. And one for your bestie too, of course.

You’ll need:

Cut 2 sets of 15 strands of embroidery thread, with each strand measuring four times the length of the bracelet. Knot the all the threads at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Sandwich each set between a bobby pin – this will help you easily weave the threads through the links of the bracelet. Lay the threads to the left of the bracelet. Pull the first color (coral) from under the first link and over the top of the left side. (Click images to enlarge)

Lay the second color (blue) over the first color (coral). Pull the second color (blue) from under the same link and over the top left again. Repeat the steps, moving onto a new link: put the first color (coral) on top of the second color (blue) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left. Lay the second color (blue) on top of the first color (peach) and pull it out from under the 2nd link and over the top left again. Because the links of this particular bracelet are large, I wove the threads through twice on each link. If you are using a smaller linked bracelet, you should weave through each link once like this.

Repeat the steps until you reach the end of the bracelet. Finish it with a knot and trim the ends.

      Toya, you can get the bracelet we used at American Apparel: http://www.americanapparel.com/brac2.html?cid=186. And yes, Rach, you can make this with any FLAT curb link bracelet like the one linked to on Etsy. Try searching “curb link bracelet” in Google for more options!

I’m curious tho on how I know a chain is “curb link”? I looked it up on google but couldn’t find anything and was wondering if you had any shopping tips? I am going to visit a local bead shop to purchase some chain, how would I distinguish which chain is curbed or not?

    I searched for cheap curb link chain to do this project for awhile…I ended up buying vintage lots of chain, and found quite a few perfect bracelet lengths of curb chain. So for everyone trying to buy the chain, try etsy or ebay and search for lots of assorted chains. They’re usually around $10 for a bag full.

Would it be too much if you tell me exactly where you got the curb link bracelet you used? Just email me the address, I can wait for it to restock or whatever. But everywhere I’ve searched doesn’t have exactly the look I’m going for.
