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!!

the TUTORIAL: BRILLIANT BRAID So we saw this tutorial the other day and thought it was brilliant. Hence, the name. I think I watched the video about 7 times because what I thought was happening in the video wasn't working on my hair. Pull your hair together to one side. Grab the bottom of your hair and pull through the hole. To make sure you don't have one big hole down the middle of your "braid", put your fingers through one side of the last twist. Finish with a clear elastic and you are done! 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. I picked up the gold necklace and the two bracelet chains from an antique shop for $5 a piece, and had the embroidery thread on hand. I only needed scissors and two bobby pins to see this project through. Pretty amazing results, no? Jump on over here for the tutorial. NECKLACE: I used shades of pale blue and turquoise embroidery thread, and wove through one side of the chain to mimic this necklace. CHARM BRACELET: This bracelet was already armed with charms. DOUBLE BRAIDED BRACELET: For this bracelet, I removed the charm and just used the chain. Photos: Courtesy of Ashley Weeks Cart

Denim bracelet - tutorial One of my most popular posts last year was my denim bracelets, and I got a lot of requests for a tutorial. So I have decided to kick off the new year by keeping my promise. What you need to make these bracelets are as follows: A worn out pair of jeansScissorsStrong thread (I used fishing line for my first one)NeedleBeadsPush buttons (I’m using a KAM press with buttons that I god from E-bay.) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.Push the needle trough the bracelet from the front. 9. 10. The second one that I’ll show you is a little more time-consuming, but just as easy to make. 1 You will need a longer thread for this, but because it’s very easy to get I tangled up I would recommend changing when you’re half way finished. 2 I’m using some tube shaped beads for this and thread one to the string before I push the needle trough the bracelet to secure it. 3 Move the needle a little to the side before pushing it back up, attaching a new bead and pushing it back down.

Lovely Wire Knot Ring Tutorial You can make this lovely ring (or a version of this design) yourself, using just some basic tools, wire and a lip balm! Yes, in this tutorial I am going to demonstrate that just basic beginner tools and a wire from Michael’s can go a long way! Wouldn’t this ring make a great present?? For the purpose of this tutorial I am going to be using the very basic, cheap tools that are available almost everywhere. PLEASE excuse the state of my nails in these pictures.. First thing to do is to cut a piece of wire. Next, wrap your wire around the tube of your lip balm. Cut of the extra bits, if any. Now bend the wire coming from your left to aim away from the ring and then bend again to aim it slightly upwards, as shown on pictures below. With your round nose pliers form a little ‘almost loop’, wire crossing above itself on the top side of the ring but not actually touching. Now you are going to put the other size of the ring (the wire from the other side) through the loop that you almost created.
