DIY: CC Skye Inspired Two Tone Chain Bracelet

I’ve never really been one to follow rules when it comes to mixing metals.  Rose gold, yellow gold, silver… I mix and match.  For that reason, I was excited to see mixed metal jewelry pop up on Shopbop this month.  This bracelet (also available in neon,) stood out as something I needed to have.  It’s also incredibly easy to make.   This is a great beginner project, and while variations of it have definitely been done before on other DIY blogs, I really love how the gold and silver chains look paired together.

{I opted to add in a pop of cobalt blue…  you can do a lot of different things – neons, neutrals, or bright colors!}

Materials / Where to Buy:  17mm chain in silver + gold // leather cord in two colors // large lobster clasp // two jump rings // pliers

    This is great, and totally agree re: mixing metals. Think it would be so fun to mix up the colors of the leather. THis is a great beginning project. Thanks, Grace!

    I need a good resource in Chicago where I can pick up this chunky chain, such a great staple in DIY! Love this bracelet.

      It’s from MJ Trimming… you should order some!

    Another great DIY tutorial! I agree, I love mixed metals. The ring I wear every day is woven silver and gold and it makes it so much easier to incorporate different types of jewelry (because I’m not concerned about matching all gold or all silver).

    Love this idea, but where do you buy your supplies from?

      Hi Tara, I actually link to each of the products in the “Materials / Where to Buy” line after the second photo in the post. Hope that is helpful.

    Thank you for the tutorial! I am new to DIY and am having difficulty with the weaving the rope. I wonder if it has something to do with the smaller chain I used. Did you have any troubles? It is not coming out as wonderful as yours!

    Thanks,

    Allison

    [...] CC Skye Inspired Two Tone Chain Bracelet Triple Ball Chain Bracelet After last week’s bracelet DIY , I thought it would be fun to do another summery bracelet. (If your curious, next week’s DIY will be another summer bracelet, too – the reason for this is that I’ve had several busy weeks topped off with weekend travel plans, and materials for bracelets travel incredibly well!) Last summer, the brilliant ladies of Honestly WTF slayed me with this fabulous wrap bracelet . Ball chain – what a brilliant idea! This bracelet uses three pieces of ball chain. While starting it is a bit tricky (I had to redo a few of mine,) perseverance pays off. The diamond friendship bracelet seems so much trickier than it actually is. I don’t know why I put off learning it for so long (last week,) but now I can’t stop making them. As with everything, practice makes perfect, but if you spend an afternoon perfecting your craft, you’ll soon be making them with your eyes closed. And once you perfect the six strand bracelet, you can move along to thicker bracelets. (I made the pink + white one below using eight strands – 6 white and 2 pink!) [...]
