DIY Neon Cord Bracelet

Here's the companion to the neon necklace I showed you last week: a sparkly, neon bracelet, inspired by nOir's bright jewels.  Let's start the new year off to on the bright foot, shall we?

Tools and Materials:
Neon cord
Rhinestone brooch
Strong glue (normally I'm team E6000, but thought I'd try out hot glue for this one. I should have used super glue instead.)
Base bangle, another treasure from the junk jewelry stash

Cut the cord into three pieces the length of the bracelet.

Glue the cord to the bangle.

Break off the pin on the back of the brooch, and glue it to the center of the bracelet.


Lovely! I have to say though, the brooch is a bit challenging with coats/sweaters/mittens. This might be in heavier rotation in a few months time when sleeves begin to shorten again.

  2. Gorgeous, Erin! I can see how it may catch on sweaters. The brooch is beautiful though and I wouldn't be able to wait to wear it!
