DIY Braided Clay Bracelet Yes I am obsessed with polymer clay. Its such a fun material to work with because if you mess up... you just mash it all up and start again. Today's DIY is a spin off of this project that I did a little while back. Knead the clay with your hands to soften it up. Using the palm of your hand roll out three long tubes. Mash the top of the tubes together and begin braiding. Using your own wrist as a guide determine how long you want to make your bracelet. Connect the two ends and gently mash ( I cant think of a better word so mash it is) the two ends together. Bake for 25 minutes at 245 degrees. I decided bright yellow was not very "fall" so I switched it out for bronze. Have a little wrist party and make as many as you want!

Black and red bracelet After finishing the chain for my Time turner necklace, I still had a lot of those black jump rings left. I wanted to make a bracelet with it, a bit in the same style as my hogwarts houses bracelets, but at the same time totally different. When I got the idea of this specific bracelet, I started searching for the perfect beads. I first found these lovely blue beads, but they were just a bit too small. I really like the way this turned out, I hope you'll like it too! DIY: Collar flúor Hace un par de días tuve el placer de organizar la fiesta de presentación de Dresseos, un nuevo vestidor de alquiler online que cuenta con piezas exclusivas de diseñadores muy reconocidos como Angel Schlesser, Amaya Arzuaga, Ion Fiz , Devota … [LEER TODO] Esta semana he podido permitirme un look más primaveral y estrenar mi nuevo crop top.

Hoy queremos compartir un outfit de día muy sencillo que esperemos os inspire ya que es muy copiable. Desde hace ya mucho tiempo, me ha llamado la atención ver en algunos desfiles de moda, como los de Angel Schlesser o Jorge Vázquez, cadenas en los pies a modo de pulseras de los zapatos. Gracias a Aussie, una seguidora de este blog podrá asistir conmigo a la fiesta que Dresseos va a organizar la semana que viene. ¡Por fin viernes!

Chain Friendship Bracelets With the weather warming up, all I want to do is make summery bracelets – for myself and all of my friends. For the past few weeks I’ve been playing with rope and chain in attempt to make the “perfect” friendship bracelet, and I think that these come close. They are fun and easy to make, though it takes a bit of practice and patience at first. Over the weekend, I made several – and the whole family was infatuated. What you’ll need: 6 pieces of embroidery floss, cut to 30″ each.2 pieces of chain (I used rose gold,) cut to 4.5″ each. The first step is to knot the six pieces of floss together at the top. When you finish braiding, tie another knot. Next, separate the floss into two bunches of three strands. Begin by weaving the first link of both pieces of chain onto your floss. From there, keeping the floss held tightly, and keeping the chain links straight (this is very important,) begin weaving through the chain at a diagonal. Continue weaving at a diagonal.

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 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. Because honestly, you can never have too many . . . 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)

Triple Ball Chain Bracelet After last week’s bracelet DIY, I thought it would be fun to do another summery bracelet. (If your curious, next week’s DIY will be another summer bracelet, too – the reason for this is that I’ve had several busy weeks topped off with weekend travel plans, and materials for bracelets travel incredibly well!) Last summer, the brilliant ladies of Honestly WTF slayed me with this fabulous wrap bracelet. Ball chain – what a brilliant idea! This bracelet uses three pieces of ball chain. While starting it is a bit tricky (I had to redo a few of mine,) perseverance pays off. What you’ll need: Colorful Waxed Linen (about 2.5 yards.)Ball Chain (about 15 inches, cut into three five inch pieces.)Scissors Begin the bracelet by cutting the waxed linen into six pieces. Take your six strands and divide them into three bundles of two. When you finish braiding, separate the strands. Take two of your pieces of ball chain, and pinch them together with the four bottom strands. Wrap slowly and tightly.
