DIY BRACELETS

There has been so much chitter chatter on pinterest lately about the stacking bracelet trend (or as some people call it - "an arm party") and I think I am jumping on the bandwagon. The bigger, bolder, chunkier, gold-er :: the better. And, in effort to be financial friendly a lot of people have starting making their own to layer. I created a DIY board to house all of my funky finds in hopes it will inspire me to tackle one.


Dana and I have collected almost all the supplies to make a few DIY jewelry projects, but we are still searching for a few supplies. Here are some of my favorite pinterest DIY jewelry ideas:
Rope & Hex Nut bracelet via truly smitten, or another take on this bracelet could be used with leather or suede (below).


 This chain & rhinestone bracelet is one of my favorites, but it has been difficult finding the right chain. We are on attempt #2 so I will let you know how it turns out! via i-spy-diy


These friendship bracelets are a total throwback to middle school, but I love the updated look with the metallic thread. via honestly wtf


Wrap bracelet - everything fabulous via honestly wtf

braided beaded bracelet via henry happened

I have a few of these on my to-do list and I will share my finished products + where to find supplies if you are interested. Have you made any of these? If so, what is your favorite? 

If you have any other good tutorials, please share! Check out my DIY board for more fun projects.

  3. I love, love, love this post. I made the chain/rhinestone one from I Spy DIY, and it is STUNNING! MJ Trimmings, where Jenni buys her stuff, has an online store, so you can get the chain from them. You'll be obsessed with it :-)

  5. Lovely DIY. Will definitely try it.
    But "the arm party" was a term coined by The Man Repeller ;)
