DIY Statement Bracelets, leather, beads, gold madeinaday.comI love making and wearing bracelets! I have been hunting Pinterest for pretty jewelry ideas for some time now and I keep coming across amazing jewelry ideas with broken and/or spam links! Usually I just do not pin them, but with some of these I just couldn’t resist.

I saved a few amazing ones to my Fashion | Jewelry DIY board anyway.  They were just too inspirational to pass up. Now that school has started I finally had a spare moment to sit down and make some of the ones that inspired me the most! I hope you like the results, I know I do!

Rope & Chain Bracelet

Supplies:

  • E6000 Glue

  • Large Gold chain (found in Hobby Lobby’s fabric section)
  • Medium Industrial Tension Clip (Lowes)

  • Stick pins for bead charms
  • Various charms
  • Gold Metallic Spray paint. (My favorite is Krylon Special Purpose Metallics, it dries in 15 minutes or less).

Make a rope BraceletTake 3 links of the gold chain and feed your floss through each end. I left the paper tags on so I would not disturb the twisted way it comes in the store.

Trim rope for bracelet end capsRemove the paper tags and cut your floss down to fit your wrist. Add some glue to the cut floss and pinch the ends so they do not fray.
