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
- 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.
Cut a strip of paper the same width and length as your bracelet.
Arrange your rhinestones on the strip of paper the way you want them on your bracelet.
Apply glue to the end of the bracelet and press the rhinestones on.
Repeat on the other end.
Apply glue in the middle and glue your center rhinestone formation you layed out.
Fill in any bare areas on the sides according to what you arranged.
Allow glue to dry. You’re done!
Using that plastic piece from the thread spool is so clever! I want to make a clear bracelet this way now : )
Wow, I could have had a hundred plus bracelets. What a great idea and a marvelous DIY.
