Yay! It’s Day 2 of Jewelry Week!
Michele and I are doing a week of Jewelry tutorials on each of our blogs – and today we’ve both got bracelets for you!
Today I have this sweet bracelet knockoff for you. It’s my version of the Anthro Interval Sparkle Cuff!
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!
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.
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.
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).
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!
Head over to Michele’s and check out her darling bracelet today! I LOVE that combination of beads, ribbon and chain she’s used!
