Threads & Chains

I met a friend of mine the other week and I promised to make her a bracelet next time we meet. This was perfect because:
  1. The latest season of The Vampire Diaries has wrapped up and I can finally start to have a  watching/creative marathon;
  2. I can de-stash my boxes and boxes of beads and findings;
  3. It will get me to try out this awesome D.I.Y. by Erica from Honestly...WTF that I've had my eye on for months.
The results thus far...

 This one's going to my friend.

For color combo inspirations, I go to Design Seeds. For example, this bracelet is inspired by Color Hunt.

This is pretty easy and really cheap to make. For full instructions, go to Honestly...WTF. Just a tip: when choosing the chain, make sure you have the one that have the links lay flat. I've had a hell of a time trying to weave through another kind of chain before I realized it was a lost cause. XD

I've still got a lot of thread, chains, and television shows left, so I'm probably going to have a bracelet-making binge... Again.

Have a great weekend!
