DIY | RHINESTONE CHAIN BRACELET

2.18.2013
I am a believer that a statement piece can really make an outfit. And with my current love of rhinestone embellishment, I wanted to create a piece of jewelry that could serve this purpose. Here, I show you how to use beautiful large rhinestones to create a chain bracelet that I have been wearing non-stop.  I especially love it paired against delicate pieces. Full tutorial after the break...
Materials:
- 1 large sew-on rhinestone (similar here, here, and here)
- 4 large jump rings
- chunky chain
- large lobster claw
- wire cutter

Steps:
1. Cut two lengths of chain using the wire cutter about 2.5 to 3".
2.  Add a jump ring to one end of each cut chain.  Before closing the jump ring, also loop the jump ring through the holes in each each of the large rhinestone.
3. At the end of one of the chains, add one jump ring.  At the other end, add one jump ring and a lobster claw.

UPDATE: I added links to similar sew-on rhinestones.  Hope this helps!!  If you are in the LA area, I found mine and a wide selection at Beads & More.  I wrote about them in my LA Supply Guide (here).
