What you'll need:
1 chain (slightly shorter than the turn of your wrist)
1 cord in the colour of your choice (at least 150cm long)
about 20 pearls (one for each link of your chain, I took pearls from an old bracelet)
nippers (in case you still have to adjust the chain)
How to proceed:
1. Adjust the chain to the size of your wrist (don't forget to leave a little space for the clasp).
2. Fix the cord to the upper link of your chain with a simple knot. One part of the cord will be to fix the clasp so it can be quite short and the other part of the cord should be the long 150cm one.
3. Stick the smaller part to the table with some sticky tape so you can work more easily. Take the long side of the cord and turn it around the first link about 5 times (you can do more or less turns, it will depend on the size of the links and the thickness of your cord).
4. Now thread one pearl into the cord and go over to the next link, doing another 5 turns.
5. Continue like this and make sure to tie the cord really firm. When you arrive at the last link turn around 5 more times and fix it all with another knot.
6. Now you have your bracelet with two cords at each side which you can use to fix the clasp. The best clasp you can take for this purpose should be the one I used here.
Easy right? Now there are so many ways to vary this DIY. For example you could continue with some other pearls on the other side of the chain. You could also leave out the pearls or replace them by some rhinestone chain. In fact you can make this bracelet as wide as you want by adding more chains or thicker cords, or... Don't forget to check out my first chain bracelet for more inspiration (pink cords, without pearls). Oh and the ultimate tip: why not make the whole thing a bit longer and use it as a necklace?
