Today I have this sweet bracelet knockoff for you. It’s my version of the Anthro Interval Sparkle Cuff!

Interval Sparkle Cuff Knockoff

This bracelet is so crazy easy to make – and to personalize! You can easily make up a bunch for gifts or to go with different outfits too!

It’s got such a great look that you can make it up in almost any fabric for a stylish unique accessory!

Here’s the Anthro version:

I think their version wrapped with embroidery floss is super cute – but I wanted something a little different. So I changed it up and went with fabric! You can definitely use this tutorial though and wrap it with floss instead.

Here’s what you’ll need to make it for your very own:

  • One metal cuff (mine is from hobby lobby)
  • rhinestone strand (again – hobby lobby)
  • linen fabric
  • contrast printed fabric
  • E-6000 glue

Start by cutting or tearing a strip from your linen – about 1″ x 25″.
Glue the end to the back of the cuff, just inside from the edge about half an inch.

wrapping bracelet with linen

Wrap the linen around the cuff until you’ve reached about 1/2″ away from the other end. Trim the fabric and glue down.

Cut your rhinestone strand so that is just about a 1/2″ shorter than the linen wrapped section of the cuff.
Flip the strand upside down onto your work surface (in my case a fancy paper plate) and cover the back with E-6000.

rhinestones for bracelet

Lay the strand along the center of the cuff. Add some extra glue to the two end rhinestones and clamp them down. Clothespins work great for this.

Ok this is pretty cute already.

Cut a strip of your top fabric about 1/2″ wide by 25″. Glue one end to the back of the cuff, just inside the linen.
Add some small dabs of glue to the bar between stones on the strand. Grab a toothpick to apply the E-6000 – this will keep it from getting all globby (yes, that’s a word).

wrapping fabric around bracelet

Wrap the fabric around the cuff, starting just inside the first rhinestone. Twist the fabric twice to that the twisted section falls over the glue and the right sides of the fabric show above and below the rhinestones.

It doesn’t have to be perfect – the messiness is part of the fun.
Keep wrapping until you’ve reached the bar before the last stone. Trim the fabric and glue to the back of the cuff.

That is all there is too it! Seriously – was that easy or what?!

I love the combination of the frayed fabric and the bling – it’s so cute!

    I do just about every type of crafting, but I never make jewelry. This makes me want to try though!

    oh for pete’s sake…am I going to have to sneak out to Michael’s every night this week??? I mean, I bought enough stuff last night to make at least three of the necklaces from yesterday, which of course I wisely did NOT stay up all night to make, so it’s sitting in the bag. Wait, I know, I’ll shake it up and drive out to Hobby Lobby tonight, and take my daughter, and pretend I’m really going just to take her! HaHaHa…I’ll fool them all :)

    Hey jewelry crafters!L. I just discovered a new line at hobby lobby of fabulous colored rhinestone strands. They have paired it in the line to go with friendship bracelets, yes, the ones you used to make with embroidery floss. I think it’s a knockoff of those wonderful bracelets I’ve seen on etsy but I can’t remember the artists name….
    Really great line!
    Have fun!
