[my DIY] chain and rhinestone bracelet

I am currently obsessed with mixing metals, and wanted a bracelet to match the new gold & silver watch I bought. Weaving together two chains and rhinestones with rope created the perfect statement bracelet to stack!
Supplies: Gold and silver chain from M&J Trimming, Rhinestone, Black Suede rope, pliers, bracelet closure. Click below for the steps. 

Tie together the two pieces of chain (two chain should be the same size links so they match up when weaving rope) with a double knot.

Start by weaving together the first link of the chains. 

Place the rhinestones in between the two pieces of chain and begin weaving all three. 

Continue weaving down the chains, pulling the rope tightly between each link. 

Using your pliers, remove any extra links so all three chains line up. Double knot at the end.

Tie the closures on each end. Trim excess rope.

Fasten around your wrist and to create a great mixed metal look!
