This pretty bracelet gave me an idea for creating something similar of my own. I have since seen quite a few similar designs, involved plaiting chain, fabric and strings of beads. I recently bought a big load of scarves and cheap jewellery from Primark to cut up and rehash into new things and this bracelet was the first quick DIY project.
Below is a strip cut off one the scarves I bought and a gold chain (this originally had nautical trinkets on it which I have removed to use on another project). I have threaded the strip of scarf through a link in the gold chain and pulled the scarf half way through.
I then plaited the fabric and chain together and secured it at the end with a knot. As the chain was already designed as a charm bracelet it has fastenings already attached which I can re-use.
