IC#4- Metal Chain and Embroidery Thread Bracelet

Our Iron Craft Challenge this week was to create something inspired by a piece you didn't buy.  I knew I wanted to create a bracelet based on some of the tribal, friend-ship bracelets out there.  I started by creating a collection of jewelry pieces on Polyvore.

Then, I created my own.  I took some random jewelry pieces that I had in my store and started taking them apart.  I always save old, broken jewelry so I can use the components over again.  I then combined some silver and gold chains together with embroidery thread.

I did add a new gold clasp to hold the bracelet all together.  I just tied each end of the chains to the clasps to hold it all together.

  1. The floss adds a nice pop of color to the chain :)

  2. That's a great idea for using old jewelry parts! It looks so fun.

  3. I really like how you combined everything together to make a nice chunky look.

  4. Cute! It came out really nicely!

  5. Fun challenge! Your piece is really unique.
