J. Crew Inspired Pavé bracelet

Ever since early summer I have been in swooning over the J. Crew Classic Pavé Link Bracelet. However the $125 price tag was less than thrilling. I decided to make a bracelet inspired by J.Crew’s Pavé, and to my surprise when I wore it into J.Crew the other day one of the sales girls said, “don’t you just love your Pavé, it’s a new wardrobe staple”.  While J.Crew’s only inspired my version, it’s simple to make (under $10) and can be created no matter what your skill level is.  

 {You will need: chain, large lobster claw, large jump rings and pliers}
 {measure and cut your chain to desired size}
 {pull one side of the jump ring toward you and the other away to open}
 {attach your lobster claw}
{close your jump ring just how you opened it}
 
{the lobster claw will attach right to the chain}

  2. I love your price much better than the J. Crew one! Especially since an employee at J. Crew couldn't tell the difference :)
