psimadethis Sumo's Sweet Stuff: .:Tutorial Tuesday–Braided Chain Bracelet:. So are you ready to learn how to make these babies? My friends and I have been on a bracelet kick lately, so this was just one more to add to the bangles adorning our arms. I wasn’t lying when I said they are easy. Here’s what you need: - embroidery thread - crimping tool - rhinestone chain (found at Wal-Mart) - chain - jump rings - alligator clasps Take your rhinestone chain out of the package. Put an alligator clasp on a jump ring. Attach your rhinestone chain, regular chain, and embroidery thread to the jump ring. I used a straight pin to secure the clasp and jump ring while I was braiding. And that’s it! It’s so easy, you can whip another one real quick, too. I decided to make a couple of plain rhinestone bracelets to go with all my other bracelets, too. Combine your new bracelet with some of your other bracelets, and make a statement! I’m loving the different styles and colors of bracelets and cuffs, aren’t you? Do you think I have a career in hand/forearm modeling? Linking up here:
Cord and Chain Double Wrap Bracelet The Braided Chain Bracelet tutorial that I posted back in August was so well loved, that I decided to do yet another bracelet tutorial. This one doesn't involve braiding, but it uses the same concept of incorporating some sort of thread/cord into chain. (By the way - Check out S&P's Facebook fan page for an entire album full of other talented ladies' versions of the Braided Chain Bracelet! I've gotten submissions from people as far away as Texas, Romania, and Denmark. ) I spotted CC Skye's Thompson Double Wrap Bracelet on CoutureCandy.com about a month ago - I loved how the leather cord adds a touch of badass to the chain. CC Skye - Thompson Double Wrap Bracelet (Polyvore.com/Zappos.com) Thompson Double Wrap Bracelet, $264 (CoutureCandy.com) Supplies:- Curb chain (I used brass) - At least 60 inches of cord (The original version used leather. 1) Measure a length of chain that will fit comfortably around your wrist. 2) Insert the cord through the topmost link in one of the strands. xokirsten

DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet We’re nuts for nuts. Is there a more versatile and inexpensive DIY component than a hex nut from the hardware store? You can imagine our excitement when we first discovered Philip Crangi’s Giles & Brother Hex Collection. Honestly, nuts braided into jewelry is WTF genius! With a few items that we always seem to have lying around, we tackled the technique and made our own spine-like braided hex nut wrap bracelet. You’ll need:3 strands of cotton butcher’s twine cut into one yard pieces18 small brass hex nutsa bit of dexterity! Gather the 3 strands of twine and tie a knot at the top, leaving about 2 inches of slack. Keep your thumb at the base of the braid, holding the nut in its place. Repeat the steps, by threading the rest of the nuts to the outer pieces of twine before they are crossed over. The bracelet should wrap around your wrist at least two or three times. Good luck!!

It was a perfect project to wrap-up with because it was fast and easy. Photo courtesy BurdaStyle The supplies are simple: chain + ribbon. For each bracelet you’ll need about 6″ of chain and 16″ of ribbon. Sidenote: Do you guys know about Fray Check? The last step it to clip off the (fraying) ends of ribbon at an angle and apply Fray Check. One more MAGIC DIY to come next Tuesday: Faux turban fabric headbands!

Snake Wrap Bracelet 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... Supplies: - Rubber snake (Mine was $1) - Metallic spray paint (not shown) - Paintbrush & acrylic paint of the same color, optional - E6000/super glue - Snake chain (appropriately named!) *My bracelet wraps around my wrist 3 times. 1) Cut off the head (about 2 inches) and tail (about 2.25 inches). 2) Spray paint! 3) When that's dry, you can touch up any missed spots with acrylic paint, if you'd like. 4) Carefully pierce a hole in the tail. 6) Pierce a hole in the base of the head. 6) Attach the largest jump ring.
