DIY — bracelet made from braided beads

DIY — bracelet made from braided beads
I came across this tutorial from ECAB that demonstrates how to make a braided bead necklace and I knew instantly that was going to be my next project. I have modified the instructions a bit to make a braided bead bracelet. I will show you pictures from my bracelet making process and give brief instructions. Please click the link above to go on over to ECAB for the full tutorial. It is wonderful. These are my supplies. First I strung about 4″ of beads on to my thread. Next I chose to go ahead and cut 2 pieces of chain a little longer than I though I would actually need and attached a jumpring. Make sure all your bead tips are closed around the knot. A closer look. Next, braid the beads. Secure the bead tips at the end of the braid to the other jumpring and chain from earlier. Cut the chain to size then attach a clasp and you are all done! Now go find a new outfit to go with your awesome bracelet. to Pinterest Like this: Like Loading...

DIY Chan Luu Bracelet « My goal this holiday season was to really try my best to make some homemade gifts. So far I’m doing pretty well with my wreath, some burlap covered candles, some personalized coasters and this past weekend I gave a try at some jewelry. You may have noticed how wrap bracelets are everywhere lately. Chan Luu bracelets are extremely popular these days. They come in singles and also in wraps.

flax & twine: Day 1: A Strand of Pearls - a diy ribbon and pearl necklace Yippee–here it is–Day number 1. I think this necklace actually was the first thing that I made in my jewelry-making frenzy to fill Allie’s Advent Calendar. I love the blue next to the pearls and love the lines the undulating ribbon and smooth pearls make together.

Photo Tile Coasters {Using Resin} Last Christmas I almost had a breakdown... We had just moved in to our home the month before, but I didn't want to let that prevent us from having the holliest jolliest Christmas. My intentions were good. Finger Knitting How-to You know how I just wrote about how I like getting a handmade gift more than just about anything. Well, this is anything. Sitting on the couch on a lazy Sunday, knitting with my kids . . . that beats gift-getting for sure. It is a gift itself.

Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones.

little glass box: When in doubt, make a lamp shade out of it... It wouldn't be Monday morning without a strange lamp shade idea right? For some reason I just have a thing for lamp shades, so I can't help but bring y'all along with me on my crazy lamp ride. This particular project was inspired by an Anthropologie display and I think it came out pretty cool. All I needed for the project was... *zip ties (a pack of 1000 from Home depot) *spray paint *chicken wire *the top rim off another shade * and a helpful hubs Do you see where I am going yet? Woven Bracelet & Necklace I’ve been itching to make myself some jewelry inspired by Aurélie Bidermann’s “Do Brasil” line. Since I don’t have 300 Euros lying around, this looked like a design I could recreate on my own. I was primed to put together a DIY Tutorial for you all when I discovered that Honestly WTF had already done the honors.

Fishtail Braided Anchor Bracelet I have been obsessed with stripes lately, mainly blues or reds against white. Such a classic combination! When I found this anchor at my local jewelry supply store, I knew that I wanted to create a DIY inspired by it and by my love for classic stripes. I mixed a nautical inspired fishtail braid with the anchor for this bracelet DIY. Hope you enjoy!

Double Strand Lace Headband Today’s headband DIY is how to make a Double Strand Headband. This headband is made almost exactly the same way as the Single Lace Headband. All you need is 36 inches of lace or ribbon 1 inch width or narrower. I used 1/2 inch width lace from Joann’s Fabrics. 3 1/2 inches of braided elastic 3/8 inch width or larger.
