Hi everyone! So, once again, I took a designer bracelet and made my own version...here's CC Skye's Thompson Bracelet. I loved how it looked, but knew I could easily make it.


This is the bracelet I made.


This is the original bracelet, $264, which I found on CoutureCandy.com


the supplies. I used black faux leather cord, brass curb chain and some black thread.


I weaved the cord in and out the chain links of 2 lengths of chain.




Then I attached both of the chain/cord strands by weaving thread in and out on each side...


Attached a clasp. All done. I love how it turned out Smiley

If you have any questions, just let me know! <3
