Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Begin with your desired length of chain & a piece of silk ribbon a bit more than double the length of chain. Weave the ribbon through the oval chain links. Wrap the ribbon once around the last link on each side & tie a small knot. Attach a jump ring to one end of the chain, and a lobster clasp to the other. When you're ready to wear, attach the bracelet together with the lobster clasp, and tie a bow with the ends of the ribbon.

    I love this! When my dad passed away my mom gave me his collection of silk ties. I’ve been looking for a way to repurpose them into something I can use. Thank you!
