– Curb link bracelet

– Embroidery thread

– Bobby pins

– Scissors


1. Cut two sets of 15 strands of embroidery threads, each strand measuring 4x the length of the bracelet. Tie together, leaving a few inches of slack.

2. Attach bobby pins to both sets of threads, and lay to the left of the bracelet. Slip the bobby pin from one of the sets under the first link in the bracelet, and pull the set of threads through the chain, and lay over the top of the left side.

3. Lay the second color over the first color, and pull the second color under the same link and over the top left, using the bobby pin.

4. Repeat these steps on down the chain. Tie off, and cut fringe.
