So are you ready to get started?

How to make a Ribbon and Chain Wrap Bracelet

Materials:

  • Vintage Style Ribbon
  • Open Chain – enough to wrap loosely around your wrist three times
  • Small pearls and head pins – 12 of each
  • Lobster Clasp
  • Needle and Thread to match Ribbon
  • Large embroidery needle

Vintage Ribbon
Thread the end of the ribbon through the embroidery needle. Thread the ribbon through the links of the chain, moving over and under the links as you go.

Continue threading the ribbon through the chain until you are about 4″ from the end of the chain. Pull the ribbon through so there is a section about 10″ at the end of the ribbon. Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain. Fold the ribbon around to the back side of the chain and sew to itself.

Feed the ribbon through the end of the chain that is left, pulling the ribbon so there is a 10″ piece to match the other end. Tie the two long pieces of ribbon into a bow.

Cut the other end of the ribbon 1″ longer than the chain and fold to the back. Stitch as before.

Add all of your little beads to the head pins and form loops at the top. You can find instructions for this in my Jewelry Tips page.

Open up the loops above the beads and add them all along the chain.
