J. Crew vs jbh

This bracelet is inspired by J. Crew’s Jeweled Cuff (available here.)

To make this cuff, you will need:

  • An assortment of rhinestones
  • E6000 glue
  • Scissors
  • Piece of paper
  • Plastic packaging from a spool of thread. (See below.)

I buy a lot of this Wildfire beading thread and they all come with a plastic protector to keep the spool from unraveling. They just happen to be the perfect size for a bracelet.

Bunny assistance is optional.

Step 1

Cut a strip of paper the same width and length as your bracelet.

2 strip of paper

Step 2

Arrange your rhinestones on the strip of paper the way you want them on your bracelet.

4 lay out more

Step 3

Apply glue to the end of the bracelet and press the rhinestones on.

5 1 glue one end
5 2 glue one end

Repeat on the other end.

6 1 glue other end

Step 4

Apply glue in the middle and glue your center rhinestone formation you layed out.

7 glue center

Step 5

Fill in any bare areas on the sides according to what you arranged.
