Done in a Flash DIY: Infinity Bracelet

You know, I originally had one more chilly weather project ready to go, but I'm so over this cold I've decided that the time has come to just ignore it and hope it goes away. 

So on to more fun things! Like making some colorful new bracelets to stack up my (soon to be in short sleeves) arms. This one is so easy - takes less than 5 minutes easy - and utilizes hair elastics. Working with used elastics is just fine, but remove any lingering strands of hair or this can quickly go from so pretty, to pretty nasty :P
What you need:
-2 hair elastics
-2 jump rings
-2" of chain
-a pair of jewelry pliers

Step 1: Place the two elastic bands so that they are layered, with the adjoining seam on each facing out.

Step 2: Fold the top band so that half of it is now on the backside.

Step 3: Pull the seam of the folded band to the left.

Step 4: Tighten.


When you're done, the elastics will now look like this:

Step 5: Open a jump ring and slide on one end of the elastics and one end of the chain. 

Step 6: Use your pliers to close the jump ring. 


Step 7: Finish the project by repeating steps 5 and 6 with the 2nd jump ring on the other end of the elastic and chain.
