It's about that time to put some statement on your wrist! With statement necklaces in full effect right now, why should your neck get all the fun? The inspiration for this bracelet came from the almighty queens of DIY - HonestlyWTF. After seeing their DIY cuff earring, I wanted to make a different version of it by using the rhinestone clusters for a bracelet. You can also use whatever material strikes your fancy for the bracelet part - chunky chain, friendship bracelet, etc. - have fun with it!
Rhinestone Cluster Materials and Instructions: Follow the directions on HonestlyWTF to make the rhinestone cluster. **One thing you'll want to do is to use rhinestone settings that have the loops on the ends in order to attach the bracelet part later on. The settings I bought (from Michaels) had loops on each end, so I used pliers to cut off any that I wasn't going to use.
In addition to the materials listed on HWTF's page, you'll need materials for the bracelet part (I got mine from Michaels)
- gold chain
- 4 gold connector loops
- 1 gold lobster clasp
1. After creating the rhinestone cluster, use a pair of pliers to cut off the post on the earring back
2. You'll then add two connectors on each end of the cluster
3. Measure out the length of chain you'll need and cut it. Then cut that piece in half. Next, attach each half of the chain to the connectors
4. Afterwards, attach two more connectors and then lobster clasp on one of the ends
Enjoy your new wrist bling!
