Delicate Chain Bracelets

Delicate Chain Bracelets
All though it could be said that I’m the queen of “more is more,” lately, I have been obsessed with dainty little baubles… especially in the form of delicate chain bracelets. I’ve bought a few here or there, but then it dawned on me – why not make a few, repurposing some old chain necklaces that I no longer wear. They’re incredibly easy to make… I made three – one with a safety pin, another with a gold tube bead, and one with a little star charm. I’m wearing the homemade versions on the right side. Materials / Where to Buy: Old necklace or delicate fine chain // charm // safety pin (I used a tiny brass one that came in this set.) // 3mm jump rings // 6mm jump rings // needle-nose pliers // tube bead //wire nippers (not pictured) To make the tube bead bracelet: 1. To make the safety pin bracelet: 1. To make the star bracelet: 1. Related:  Bracelet

Grown Up Friendship Bracelet Tutorial Guess what I found? A tutorial that I had kind of forgotten about! See? My hair was long here! In fact, one summer during college, I interned at a camp and one of my jobs was putting together the craft activities for the campers. What you need:-Some sort of round/square/etc. metal piece for the middle- 16″ of string (I used hemp) 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. **Once getting it started, I like to put it on something to help keep the strings straight. 14. 15. so the right side knot could slip through the two knots on the left end. Alternatively, you could add a clasp to the ends or create a sliding knot like this here.

DIY Gold Tube Bracelets I have very vivid memories of walking into a bead store for the first time, almost 15 years ago, and being overwhelmed by the million and ten ideas that filled my mind. I was immediately hooked on the concept of transforming simple and unexpected elements into something beautiful and wearable. That moment was the catalyst for my eventual path into jewelry design and craft – my higher calling, if you will. Today’s tutorial takes me back to my first foray into jewelry making, where I’ll show you how to make two delightful bracelets using the same basic component. Get inspired and have fun! For single, adjustable gold tube bracelets, you’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into 2 12 inch pieces. And now, all that’s left is the sliding closure! . . . and bring the top cord under both the bottom and middle overlapping strands through the loop, into a knot. Repeat the same step on the right side. Continue to make 5-6 more knots. Trim away any excess cord. Layer and enjoy.

Tubular Friendship Bracelets My line-up of DIY projects was put on hold last week when a friend’s grandfather passed away. She asked if I could make her and her family a series of red, tubular embroidery thread bracelets to wear during the mourning period. And so back into the friendship-making mindset I went! Given that this woman not only threw me a whale of a baby shower, sewed the cover for the girls’ loveseat, knit Sunny the most adorable sock monkey stuffed animal, and hemmed fabric for a project I will unveil in the coming weeks, I dove right in. Since I spend up to four hours a day breastfeeding Courtland, I was fortunate to have a pattern in mind that was easy to do with baby strapped to boob. I used only red thread, but you could easily mix it up with an array of multi-colored strands for an interesting effect. While certainly a sad reason to engage in this project, I am happy that a little tutorial could come from it. To learn how to tie a sliding knot, refer to this video tutorial.

Fabriquer un bracelet avec un noeud de carrick 27 octobre 2010 3 27 /10 /octobre /2010 22:13 Aujourd'hui un petit tuto pour réaliser un très joli bracelet avec un noeud de carrick. Ultra simple à réaliser. Pour le réaliser, il faut juste travailler avec deux cordages en double. Le premier cordage plié en deux réalise une demi clé. Le deuxième cordage plié en deux lui aussi passe deux fois dessous, ensuite il passera dessus, dessous... ... pour ensuite traverser en exploitant les ganses, à savoir : dessus, dessous, dessus. Vous n'avez plus qu'à passer les deux extrémités à travers leur deux ganses respectives, le tour est joué.

CC Skye Inspired Two Tone Chain Bracelet I’ve never really been one to follow rules when it comes to mixing metals. Rose gold, yellow gold, silver… I mix and match. For that reason, I was excited to see mixed metal jewelry pop up on Shopbop this month. This bracelet (also available in neon,) stood out as something I needed to have. It’s also incredibly easy to make. This is a great beginner project, and while variations of it have definitely been done before on other DIY blogs, I really love how the gold and silver chains look paired together. {I opted to add in a pop of cobalt blue… you can do a lot of different things – neons, neutrals, or bright colors!} Materials / Where to Buy: 17mm chain in silver + gold // leather cord in two colors // large lobster clasp // two jump rings // pliers

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. 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!!

Tuto bijoux: fabriquer des bracelets en corde naturelle avec des perles et des boutons de bois Je vous propose aujourd'hui un tutoriel bijoux écos! Ces jolis bracelets sont fait à partir de cordes de chanvre et de perles / boutons de bois. Vous pouvez facilement modifier et adapter les couleurs et la grandeur à votre goût. Vous aurez besoin de: -Cordes de chanvre ou tout autre corde naturelle -Boutons de bois, perles de bois -Crochet, anneaux et embouts de fermeture On commence par enrouler 7 fois la corde sur un guide. J'ai utilisé ma règle pour une longueur finie de 16.5cm (6 1/2 pouces). J'ai ensuite fixé un bout à la machine à coudre pour que les 14 bouts de cordes tiennent bien ensemble. Il a été nécessaire pour moi de passer un petit coup de vapeur au fer à repasser sur mes cordes pour qu'elles soient bien droites et sans plis. Je n'ai pas fait de noeuds. L'étape la plus délicate consiste à fixer toutes les cordes dans l'embout de fermeture. On fixe ensuite deux anneaux à une extrémité; un petit et un grand. Voilà! J'espère que vous aimerez fabriquer ces bracelets!

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)

Fabriquer un bracelet de star | Princesse Pia A force de surfer sur des sites de bijoux artisanaux et de flâner dans les petites boutiques de curiosité, ça donne des idées. Ni une, ni deux, je fonce à la mercerie. Pour un début, je décide de faire soft et sobre. Je ressors donc avec 1 mètre de fil gris, 1 étoile, 4 cristaux de Swarovski transparents pour un total de 1.86 euros. Comment faire ? J’ai tout d’abord couper une longueur de 26 centimètres (de quoi faire le tour du poignet et les noeuds coulissants). J’ai ensuite enfilé les perles et l’étoile. J’ai bien centré les objets et j’ai fait un noeud de chaque côté des cristaux de Swarovski pour les maintenir en place. Puis des noeuds coulissants aux extrémités. Bon je vous l’accorde le noeud de gauche est fait dans le mauvais sens (avec l’extrémité vers l’interieur), mais c’est mon premier ! Et voilà le résultat ! Vous aimez ?
