I made a few of these today. SOOO easy! Each one took about 10 minutes from start to finish. I think they look cute layered with other bracelets.

They are made using leather cord, embroidery floss and plumbing chain. I bought the chain on Etsy for a couple bucks but apparently you can also buy it at Home Depot.





Here's a link to the tute I used: http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-wrap-bracelet/

LOVE these! I hate making necklaces with these ball chains but have so many lying around. Can't wait to make some of these with them. Love your colors!

Gorgeous! Have to check out the tut and see if I have the supplies to give it a try.

The ball chain you can buy at any home improvement store. Also you can get it online for pretty cheap in colors:

I have a lot of this chain laying around from when I used to wear several strands layered together, this is a nice idea to put it back into my wardrobe.

These look awesome! Where does one find waxed linen cord? Do you think embroidery floss would work, or would it shred?

I used embroidery floss and it seemed to work just fine. I did all 6 strands originally but that was a little bulky so I made the others with 3 strands.

I know that Fire Mountain Gem and Beads sells waxed linen cord in multiple colors and sizes.  But leather/leatherish cord would probably work just as well and might be easier to find.
