I think I've become obsessed with making stuff. It's the most rewarding feeling to look at something you've created, especially if you actually like it, and know that you put it together. It might be something small like braiding thread around a chain, or something big like assembling a bookcase and not crying//punching a hole in the wall in the process. Either way- Awesome.
So when I saw this DIY Tutorial from Honestly...WTF I knew I had to try it. The embroidery thread was the easy part to track down, the chain link bracelet- not so much, apparently mainstream finds them "gaudy" (which I did too, up until I wanted one for this DIY). I ended up finding a chainlink necklace in Ardene's, keeping it classy naturally, and decided the bracelet would become a wrap one (with a tail).
Now, I'm no teacher, and since I would just be butchering the clear and easy-to-follow instructions that Lauren and Erica put together I'm just going to direct you over there if you want to see how I did this. It really wasn't hard, a little more tricky than the hex nut bracelet, but I finished mine in about an hour and it would've been less had I been able to find an actual chain link bracelet.
I'm quite happy with it, the perfect pop of cheerful colour to add to basic outfits, plus it doubles as a friendship bracelet for classy adults. Guess what my besties are getting in their stockings this year! ;)
