DID YOU KNOW?

Body chains have been around for centuries. Use of waist chains can be traced back to 4000 years or more. The concept of body jewelry traces back to Indian origin. Indian women decorate their waist area and other body parts with light or heavy chains that are worn over saris/dresses or simply over exposed bellies. These chains are typically made from precious metals, mainly gold and silver.

In Europe, and the rest of the world, this style of jewelry caught on in the culture in the trend of women wearing chains across their belly partnered with a casual crop top and pants/skirts. Body chains made a return in 2009/2010 as fashion statement jewelry. These days, the go-to body chain style is cross-body, made popular by music stars like Rihanna and Beyonce. But these outside-of-the-box jewelry pieces can still be affordable. DIY body chains are budget-friendly, trendy, and fun to make and wear!

I am really not into body chains but for anyone that is or if you know someone how is this is a very easy tutorial to follow. It would look cute with a dress and you can use whatever chain you want and any color too. I have not seen anyone wearing a body chain around here but there is always someone that can start it.

Now this is a very different pattern. Very nice. I like the look that this body chain gives to the LBD or little black dress. It transforms a plain dress into a chic classic. This is very stylish. I am definitely making one of these. I did not know that body chains had been around for more than 4000 years. Thanks for the little history lesson.
