This post is going to be the start of several copycat tutorials. I really need to curb my online window shopping, because now I have many, many more DIY projects inspired by accessories I've found online. Luckily for me, I can hide all my ideas in my secret Pinterest board to keep the element of surprise-- I love that they added that feature!
Anyway, to start things off, I made this DIY jeweled cord bracelet bracelet using this piece of arm candy as an inspiration point. I went with classic black and silver, but let your imagination run wild when it comes to color combinations.
Tools and materials:
Black cord long enough to go around your wrist
Sew-on jewels (my crystal ones are these and my black square ones are available here)
2 cord end caps
Jump rings and clasp (and extender chain, optional)
Needle and thread
Super glue and toothpick for applying the glue
Thread your needle and securely sew it to the cord. I started in the middle to make sure I evenly spaced my jewels.
Add all the jewels. I alternated colors, but tried to change up the positioning.
Place glue in the end caps and attach the cord. Allow to dry, then use pliers to add the jump rings and clasp.
