I have to admit I feel a little dirty doing a project about how to make a knock-off of someone else’s jewelry, but I just keep telling myself that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If I were to meet Mr. Tom Binns I would flatter him silly I am such a huge fan of his work plus it's not like I am going to start selling these on Naughty Secretary Club . Diamonds and cameos combined with neon colors and words like chaos, how could I not love his style. When I kept seeing the No Time watches in magazines like Elle and Blogs like Fashiontribes (image via Schmashion / Elle ) I kind of fell in love a little bit and cut a picture of the watches out of a magazine and stuck it up on my handy dandy inspiration board and waited for something to cook.
This project brings back memories, in more than one way. 1) I loved lanyard when I was a kid, and I clearly remember making sooo many keychains and bracelets. 2) This DIY reminds me of S&P's first ever project, the Braided Chain Bracelet , from last summer. And 3) ...Well, my entire bedding set during my Freshman year of college were these exact colors. My comforter was reversible neon green and bright blue, and I even had hangers and towels in the same colors. By the time I graduated I was more into the darker jewel tones, but I still can't resist a good pop of color.

This DIY starts off pretty crazy - but I promise the finished piece is way cooler! You might even have all of the supplies already...except the rubber snake. If you're into accessories of any kind, I'm sure you've noticed the snake trend going on in rings, bracelets, necklaces, etc. It's been around for a while, so I kind of wish I thought of this earlier - but it wouldn't hurt to make it anyway. This bracelet was inspired by the pieces below...
