Rhinestone Cup Chain Bracelet (crisscross method) – 2015
This beautiful Rhinestone Cup Chain bracelet is very popular at our bead shows. you can use just about any cord as the base, as long as the hole(s) in button you use are big enough to thread the cord through.
To get the right amount/length of supplies, take a length of string and wrap around wrist. Make it loose enough so that it is comfortable to wear. If you want the bracelet to wrap a few times, wrap the string that many times and remember to loosen for comfort. Mark the string with marker and measure the length.
Here’s what you’ll need: Rhinestone Cup Chain– you will need 2 lengths of the measured amount (we used fuchsia, gold plate and topaz, gold plated) Core Cord (we suggest leather or suede) -double the measured length + 5inches Anchoring string (this is was will hold the chain in place) – atleast 3 times the measured length 1 Button (can be 2-holed or shank)

Which size of cup chain do you use, and what is the “string”? Thanks, great bracelet tutorial!
Thank you for your comment.
We used 3mm cup chain and 3mm suede.
For the thread, you can use any beading thin cord or thread like C-lon, S-lon or any thread (like embroidery thread) you have on hand.
We will be adding a thread section soon to our website.
I wish it was a video, having trouble starting it.
