Gold Link Bracelet DIY

I'm not much of a bracelet person. I have big wrists and bracelets always seem to clank around on everything and annoy me. But, when I received these beads and supplies from Whole Port, a bracelet is the first thing that came to my mind! Have you ever checked out Whole Port? They have a BUNCH of beading supplies! The beads were so pretty but I didn't have enough for a necklace...they were too clunky for earrings...so a bracelet it was!!

I started by making links with each of my beads using eye pins and making a simple loop on the other side of the bead. Next I connected the gold circle links to each of the beads and each other just like using a jump ring. Added on a clasp, and I was done! So cute! This will be available in my etsy shop after I get around to adding it...email me if you are interested before hand! Thank you Whole Port for the beads! I'll be linking up to these parties: Slave Bracelet. Wire-Wrapped Bead Bracelet. Undeniable Glitter: Braided Cuff Bracelet. Today I'm going to share my tutorial for these super simple braided cuff bracelets.

Undeniable Glitter: Braided Cuff Bracelet

Materials: bracelet size memory wire, seed bead mix ( the blue, pink, black/ gray mix came from A.C. Moore, and the purple and black/ white came from Michaels), 2 eye pins, wire cutters, round nose pliers, and optional bead spinner. Cut 12 pieces of memory wire, each about 1 1/2 loops long. (The purple and black/white mix only had 9 pieces). With the round nose pliers, make a loop at the end of each piece. Now, we can thread beads onto the wire. Once you have threaded enough beads to make a complete circle, trim the end of the wire, and make a loop. Now we can start braiding! Attach one end of a memory wire circle to the end of the eye pin. Now string a bead, a memory wire circle, the another bead. Separate the memory wire into three sections. Now repeat the finishing for the final side. Enjoy! I always get tons of compliments when I wear these bracelets. Alyssa. Twofer-cage-bead-bracelet. DIY Hammered Metal Snake Cuff. Now that it’s September we can start getting ready for Halloween, right?

DIY Hammered Metal Snake Cuff

Pumpkin spice hit stores September 1st so I must not be the only one who loves this season! But Halloween jewelry is tricky. I’m not one for scary or gruesome, and so much of it veers into the cheesy category. This simple hammered snake cuff gives a nod to the season without being overly kitschy. Plus it’s super fun to pound on some metal! Make Your Own DIY Snake Cuff Supplies needed: Half-hard 18 gauge wireHammerWire clippersNeedle nose jewelry pliers Start by clipping a long section of wire. Using the needle nose jewelry pliers, make a small loop at one end to form the snake head.

Again mold the wire around your arm and adjust the length if needed. Snakes scare the death out of me but I don’t mind wearing this one!
