Tutoriel DIY Bracelet matériel A DIY tutorial is so much fun. Do you love a fun hardware bracelet DIY as much as I do? They are easy (well, usually), fast and stylish. The craft trifecta! I’ve been playing around with sequins, trying to make earrings or even decorate a shirt. And you know my love of hex nuts. Want to give it a try? You will need: Stretch Magic cord. If you can’t find sequins on a string, you can use a small needle to stack them and make the process go faster. And make sure you are threading the sequins on in the same direction. When you need a break from stringing sequins, go ahead and glue your hex nuts together with E-6000 glue. When you have enough sequins strung to wrap around your wrist add the hex nuts. Read the Stretch Magic instructions on how to knot the cord. And you’re done! Stephanie Gerber Stephanie Gerber is a mother of 3 who writes for pretty mommies on a budget.

Wrapping a Bracelet Macie seems to have a thing for jewelry. I have no idea where she got it from because I barely wear jewelry. I went to a baby shower this past weekend and had to reopen my ear holes to put in some earrings. I have seven ear piercings and couldn't get earrings in. Yeah, I know it's sad. I had seen a pin from about making a bracelet out of ball chain and decided to make a couple adjustments and make it a wrap bracelet. I picked up some ball chain at Lowe's (have I mentioned that they are a great place to find your crafting needs??). Once you have reached the length that you want for the bracelet, time to grab the trusty wire cutters and snip the end of the ball chain off. Now I have a new bracelet and Macie is so happy with her shimmery hearts, she won't even try to steal it - yet.

Comment faire des bracelets en tissu ou en ruban / Breloque & Pendentif Comment faire un bracelet en tissu ou comment monter des embouts pour bracelet/collier sur du tissu ou autres ! Tout d'abord, couper un bout de ruban (+ ou - 17cm) : Bien placer un embout à l'un des extrémités des rubans : Pincer fort l'embout sur les rubans : Et voilà déjà une extrémité de faite ! Tourner les rubans entre eux (ce n'est pas obligé, c'est juste une idée pour le côté esthétique !) : Placer le 2ème embout de l'autre côté des rubans et on y est presque : Monter le fermoir sur un des embouts : Mettre un anneau sur l'autre embout pour que le mousqueton puisse s'accrocher de l'autre côté : Monter la breloque au milieu du bracelet : On peut aussi rajouter des petites perles au niveau du fermoir : Et voilà !

Easy Wire Jewelry Hajlítottam már sok-sok fülbevalót, medált és néhány kar- illetve nyakláncot is, de valahogy a gyűrűkkel nem boldogulok. Készítettem már párat, de végül egyik sem nyerte meg annyira a tetszésemet, hogy közzétegyem. Ez az első olyan darab, amit meg merek mutatni, és ami nekem is tetszik. Lehet, hogy azzal volt korábban gondom, hogy nem jutott eszembe olyan forma, ami szimmetrikus, és amelyben a drótvégeket is szinte észrevétlenül, egy-egy csiga nélkül el tudom tüntetni. Biztos a tavasz közeledte juttatta eszembe ezt a mintát, nekem mindenesetre nagyon megtetszett. Hozzávalók 30 cm hosszúságú 1 mm-es lágy drót 240 cm hosszúságú 0,4 mm-es lágy drót 6 mm átmérőjű ásványgolyó (türkinit) Szükséges eszközök Laposfogó Kúposfogó Oldalcsípőfogó Gyűrűfelütővas Az elkészítés menete Laposfogónkkal törjük meg derékszögben a 30 cm hosszúságú drótdarabunkat kb. 10 cm-re az egyik végétől, majd fűzzük fel rá az ásványgolyót ellentétes irányból.

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. This turned out to be harder than I thought: They had to be big enough to fit on the jump rings, yet small enough to let two of them fit on. Also, I needed quite a lot of them. 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!

Vikini 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)

How to Make a Button-and-Wire Brooch I'm still noodling with buttons and wire over here... and this is the latest result. I like how the design can take on a "shooting star" effect, or resemble a little flower vase. This isn't a complicated project - please don't let the number of photos here fool you! I was just trying to be thorough. You'll need some 24 gauge craft wire and some assorted buttons. One of them should be a large shank button. So, begin with one of the sew-through buttons. Pull the button along until you have about 8" of wire sticking up through it. Pull this little wire "stitch" as snug as you can. Next, take the end of the wire and poke it back up through the next hole, as shown. Poke that wire back down through the last hole in the button, creating another "stitch" on the front, as shown. Now, place the two strands of wire coming from the back of the button side by side, as shown. ...And then gently twist the wires together. There are worse fates, but still... You can now cut the wire away from its spool.
