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
-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 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.
