Step by Step


Step One: Cut yourself a piece of wire, long enough just for the width of your wrist.

Step Two: File both ends of the wire until they feel smooth 

Step Three: With your round nosed pliers; bend one end over to create an open loop.

Step Four: Hook the end of your chain around the looped wire.

Step Five: Close the loop using your pliers

Step Six: Poke the other end of the wire through the chain, and then measure it around your wrist to find a length suitable for you. 

Step Seven: When you find a length of chain you like cut it to size using wire cutters.

Step Eight: Finally, create another wire loop, similar to the first, but leave this one open so you can hook and unhook the chain on the bracelet for easy removal.
