Washer & Macramé Bracelet

Washer & Macramé Bracelet
this week’s diy is inspired by the twosome bracelet from anthro, the one with flat discs. it is a super simple bracelet to make and it cost me maybe 3 to 5 dollars to make total. full on diy after le-jump. supplies i used: glue, i love 527 glue & use it often. i already had this in my supply box, but i suppose krazy glue or some other type would work just fine. washers. i bought a little box from home depot. i didn’t get the smallest size, which resulted in a chunkier bracelet. there are tiny washers out there if you want a daintier bracelet. waxed cotton cord. i had chocolate brown in my arsenal, but i really love bold colors too. pick whatever size you think would compliment your washers. you only need two strands to fit through the washers, if that helps. hemp, linen, or bamboo cord would work well too. oh, & scissors.

Holst + Lee inspired rope bracelet I am loving rope jewelry right now. Bright, fun, tribal, and perfect for Spring. In my opinion, Holst + Lee does it the best. This necklace? What you will need: Begin by taping your embroidery floss to the rope. Wrap your embroidery floss around the rope once, and then add the chain – wrapping in between the first two crystals. Continue to wrap, wrapping around 3x between each crystal. Hold it steadily, and wrap away. When you are halfway through, knot on your second color, and keep wrapping. (Go back and snip off the ends later.) Keep on wrapping… when you get to the end, tape the end down, just as you had done in the beginning. Apply a small drop of Gorilla Glue to each end, and slide on the end cap. Allow to dry for 1-2 hours. Thread your jump ring through the end of the cap and close it. Add your clasp… And voila, your bracelet is complete!

Video Tutorials | Make Bracelets! Up-cycled Beaded Silk Wrap Bracelet Tutorial Irish Linen Sparkly Wrap Bracelet Tutorial Beaded Wrap Bracelet – Waxed Irish Linen Tutorial DIY Braided Bead Bracelet It’s been awhile since our last bracelet DIY. I don’t know about you, but our wrists have been begging for another colorful addition for months now. So after playing with some materials that were already on hand, we’ve created a tutorial for a braided bead bracelet, which is a not so distant cousin of the hex nut and wrap bracelet. You’ll need: Cut the waxed linen cord into a 26″ and 19″ piece. Tie a knot about half an inch down from the loops. Start braiding the strands. Push the bead against the base of the braid, and cross the left strand over the middle. Keep a finger at the base of the braid, holding the beads in their place and keeping the braid tight. Finish the bracelet with another inch of braided cord, measuring it against the wrist. Thread on a two hole button – two strands through one hole and one strand through another. Trim the end. Your bracelet is finished! (all images by HonestlyWTF)

Rhinestone Bangles I’ve had this project on the back burner for a long time and I’m so happy to have finally finished it to show you all! These bangles make great sparkly accessories for the holiday season or easy DIY presents for your fabulous friends! *NOTES: I bought a stack of 20 simple bangles at Target for less than $5. The rhinestone strands are from Michaels. You can use dots of glue to help start and finish off the thread wraps if you find it easier and less stressful than tucking and wrapping.

DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.

DIY Luv Aj Handpiece When the lovely Amanda Thomas of Luv Aj offered to show us how to DIY her signature handpiece, we were ecstatic! Not only are we huge fans of her jewelry, we’ve been dying to adorn ourselves with this ring and bracelet combination. Thank you for the awesome tutorial, Amanda! This season, the best seller in the entire collection was the Polished Pyrite Handpiece. You’ll need: Now that you have all you need, let’s get cracking. Now for the bracelet portion- everyone’s wrist is a little different so you can ball park the length. So now we need to attach all the smaller chains together: Open up one of the smaller jump rings and loop the shorter piece of chain and connect the jump ring on both ends. Don’t close the jump ring yet though, we need to add the two longer strands of the thin chain to the same jump ring. Grab the thick chain you cut for the bracelet portion and find the middle. Repeat the same step on the other side. Voila!

How to make wrapped leather bracelets « Rings and Things Triple-wrap leather bracelet with blue tigereye beads Let me begin by stating the obvious – this style of wrapped leather bracelet is EVERYWHERE this season. Everywhere! Even my athletic clothing catalogs – which only have maybe three pieces of jewelry – are featuring this style. Five different leather wrapped gemstone bracelets designs: green opal, mookaite, African turquoise, hematite and rhodonite The supply list is pretty short: 4-6mm round beads We used gemstone beads, but glass, crystal beads or pearls would also be lovely. Wrapped bracelet made with green opal gemstone beads and natural Greek leather. The technique: Choose your bracelet length and cut your leather. If your button has a small loop, you might need to miter (angle) the leather end and pull it through with pliers. Other design options: Have fun creating your own wrapped bracelets! Need supplies? Other how-to’s: Q: “How do you start a new thread in the middle of the bracelet?” (answers selected from replies to blog comments)

{macramé: square knot} string & hexnut bracelet By Kate on September 13, 2011 This bracelet has been inspired by this really wonderful “Braided Hex-nut Bracelet” tutorial which I pinned on Pinterest a while back. Two things I absolutely love about this project are: 1) It’s cheap as chips: I already had string in the cupboard and the brass hexnuts were 3p each from the hardware shop. 2) It’s my kind of jewellery: I’m not really a girly girl IYKWIM! The bracelet I made is a bit different to the ‘braided hex-nut bracelet’ and uses macrame instead, which is great, because I promised some tutorials a while back and felt a bit bad that I hadn’t written any yet! Full instructions after the jump! Square Knot Please note: I have used different colored cord in the tutorial so that it’s easier for you to figure out whats going on! 1. 2. 3. 4. This might seem a little tricky a first but I promise once you have done it a dozen times you’ll be sorted….! If you need a hand then leave a comment and I’ll get back to you.
