Here's a simple 'How To' from Boatemaa to create some rock chic chain bracelets- perfect teamed with a classic leather jacket...
You will need:
-Memory wire (preferably gold or silver plated)
-A length of chain
-Round nosed pliers
-A nail file
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.
