First cut a piece of the chain that is as wide as your wrist.

Next, cut a piece of wire that would fit around your wrist, and wrap it around to give it a circular shape. Using your round nosed pliers, create a hook at one end of the wire and attach the chain to it.

Close your hook with the needle nosed pliers.

Wrap the chain and wire around your wrist, and cut the wire so that it goes about half an inch passed the first chain. This will be the closing part of your bracelet.

Once it’s cut, make a hook like you did earlier, making sure the chain can fit. The tighter the better, so the chain can’t slip out, but you still need to be able to remove the bracelet if you’d like to. And that’s it! Your own wire chain bracelet.
