Bracelets made with heavy chain & plastic lanyard (typically used in kids’ crafts, summer camp throwback anyone?) I still wear the black one pretty often! It can almost pass for patent leather trimming. Search for “Lanyard Double Chain Bracelet” at studs-and-pearls.com for the #DIY. #studsandpearls #handmade #diyfashion
