You should all know by now that we are all about stacking bracelets on our wrists.  The more, the better.  In fact… the most, the best!  With that being said, we’ll show you how to master a version of the ever so popular wrap bracelet.  It’s so simple and addicting, you’ll soon be churning out these wristlets with your eyes closed.  Clearly this arm party train isn’t stopping and it’s about time you get on board!

You’ll need (for a double wrapped bracelet):

*Lengths will vary depending on the size of your wrist.

wrap1

Fold the length of leather cording in half to form a loop.  The loop should fit around the hex nut, which serves as the clasp.  Run the tip of the waxed linen upwards along the leather cord and towards the loop.  Then wrap around the base of the loop at least 5-6 times, working downwards in the opposite direction.  This secures the waxed linen cord and is the start of the bracelet.

 wrap2

Place the ball chain along the leather cording with the end of the chain meeting the end of the wrap.  Holding the ball chain against the leather cord, wrap the linen around tightly.

 wrap3

Continue wrapping while checking it for fit around the wrist.

wrap4

When you have reached the end of the ball chain wrap the linen cording around the leather strands 2-3 more times.  Tie a knot with all three strands.

 wrap5

Thread the hex nut through the strands and tie a second knot.

wrap6

Trim with scissors and your wrap bracelet is finished!!

wrap7

The materials are listed for a double wrap bracelet.  For a single or triple wrapped bracelet, divide the measurements by 2 and multiply by accordingly.  Experiment with crystal or other types of chain!

 wrap8

It’s a party!
