Remember how I said I was making my way through my supply box, trying to use up as many odds and ends as possible? Well, that's how this little chain bracelet came to be. Random scraps of chain? Check! Thick thread that I have no idea what else to do with? Uh huh. Enough jump rings to last a lifetime? You know it! So whether you have miscellaneous bits you want gone, or you just plain like the way this bracelet looks, read on for full instructions!

Start by measuring the chain so it fits loosely around your wrist, removing any excess. Cut a long strip of thread and tie it to the end of the chain, ensuring that the knot falls in the mid point of the thread's total length. You're going to want the two pieces of thread to be at least twice as long the chain itself.

From there, keep knotting the thread loosely until you have enough to span the length of the chain. When that's done, weave the knotted thread through the chain.

Double knot the end of the thread when you're done, and trim the remaining thread to your desired length. Gently singe the tips of the excess thread with a lighter to seal them together.

Sidenote: You might need to do this again after wearing the bracelet — mine started to fray after the second wear.
