Learn how to make your own Inca Puño Bracelet at home with this instructional tutorial and a few simple hand tools; no electricity, soldering, or studio required. This two-page PDF jewelry tutorial illustrates step-by-step how to assemble the ancient Inca Puño chain that I first saw being assembled in the highlands of Peru over twenty-five years ago. The unique flexibility and strength of this chain pattern was the initial catalyst for my chain-making curiosity, and I also hope it inspire your jewelry adventure.

Easy to follow tutorial and my chain looks beautiful! Thanks so much!
My first time buying a tutorial, and using jump rings to make jewelry. Because I'm so new, this took just a minute to make sure I was seeing everything correctly. The photos are very clear, and the use of different colored rings (copper) to show the current step was very helpful. I read it through twice and now am sure I can make this attractive bracelet! Thank you!
Nice instructions, great pics-complete instructions including wire gauge sizes and jump ring sizes. I have purchased tutorials that dont include this, so thank you! will probably purchase more.
Immediate delivery and follow up from the seller. I especially love that the pattern uses different metals to clearly show each step of adding jump rings. Highly recommended!!!
