Happy Friday Eve!! (Can you tell I'm excited for the weekend?!)
Last weekend John and Scout went hunting in Patagonia, AZ, and as much as I miss him and Scout when they leave, it is always a perfect opportunity to work on some DIYs!
When I was growing up I always enjoyed making jewelry, so I thought I would break out all my gear and make some stackable bracelets!
What you need:
Begin by putting a row of beads on an eye pin
Using wire tools (or your finger if you're strong!), bend the straight end of the eye pin to a circle to match the other end of the eye pin.
Open the jump rings and add one to each end of the eye pin; close the jump rings once they are on the eye pin
Cut two pieces of cord and loop them through the jump ring
Open a jump ring and add the crimp and clasp; then, open a second jump ring and add a crimp; close both jump rings
Add one of the crimps to one of the sides of the leather cord and close the crimp using pliers or wire tools; add the other crimp to the other side and close
To finish, trim off the leather that is sticking out from the crimp
And ta da!
They are quite easy to make and super inexpensive... not to mention you can make totally different looks depending on the type of beads you use!
Make a few and stack them, or wear just one at a time - either way, they are way cute!
Linking up with Annie!
