I love wearing a bunch of different bracelets, but I hate it when they’re super heavy and all I want to do is take them off. That’s definitely not the case with this cute little miss-matched set as they are all light as a feather.
Here’s what you’ll need to make them.
Different Colored Ribbon – 3/8 inch wide
Clasps – (regular & toggle)
Step 1: Wrap tape around the tip of your ribbon so it’s easier to weave in and out of your chain.
Step 2: Cut your chain at 7 inches and clip it to a storage container so it’s easier to work with. Once your weave your first ribbon-chain bracelet move to Step 4 and complete. Your next ribbon chain bracelet you will weave beads in and out of the ribbon which you will start in Step 3.
Step 3: Measure your beading thread to be about 8 inches as you want to give yourself plenty of space for any errors. You probably won’t use all of it, but better safe than sorry. Double the thread, thread the needle and knot it at the end. Then insert needle into your ribbon-chain as shown below, adding a bead at every intersection.
Step 4: Fold ribbon over last chain link.
Step 5: Insert threaded needle through side of chain link around ribbon and back through other side. Repeat step several times until the ribbon is cinched at the middle. Finish off by sewing a few stitches through the ribbon to secure it in place.
Step 6: Cut ribbon as close to cinched thread as you can.
Step 7: Attach Jump Rings to the ribbon at each folded over end and attach clasps and charm if desired.
Now you have two bracelets done.
Step 8: For the last two bracelets, simply string desired colored glass beads to a 7 inch length using beading thread tied to a regular clasps & Jump Ring.
And presto…a new set of light weight assorted bracelets.
