Place 4 closed rings on an open ring and close the ring. Arrange the rings so they form a 2-1-2 pattern. With an open ring go through one of the sets of 2 rings, add 2 closed rings and close the ring. With an open ring go through the 2 rings you just added, add 2 closed rings, and close the ring. You now have a 2-1-2-1-2-1-2 chain. The length of this chain determines the width of the bracelet. To make the instructions easier I will number the columns from 1-7. None of the rings sit perfectly flat. Each ring has a raised end that sits higher. Notice in the red odd numbered columns that the rings have a raised edge at the top and in the blue even numbered columns the raised edge is at the bottom. Make sure your piece looks the same, if it doesn't just turn it around so it does.
