Arm Band DIY


I've got a feeling I'm going to be wearing this piece just about every day this summer. This is my first go around, but I'm sure I'll make a whole lot more of these in different looks and styles, and I'll be sure to share the process with you. When making your own, be creative with the chains and placement; there's no wrong way to do this!


supplies: different strands of chain, jewelry pliers, thin elastic, and needle and thread.

Begin by choosing the base chain. This is the piece that will wrap around your arm. Next, take other chains and with the jewelry pliers, attach them to the base chain. I chose to attach three chains in the form of a U shape, with the outside chain being the longest and the inner chain the shortest. Lastly, attach the chains together with the thin elastic. The elastic will prevent the chain from sliding down throughout the day.
