DIY Crystal Bracelet

DIY: Quadruple Sparkle Bracelet

Today’s DIY would make the perfect gift… either for yourself or for that sparkle-holic girlfriend.  I’ve always had a soft spot for bling so I really enjoyed creating this one.  From first glance it looks expensive and ornate… then you realize it’s actually just four strands of rhinestones, tightly wrapped together.  I made this rather easily in under a half hour.. and plan to make many more as gifts.. just need to load up on more rhinestone chain.  Happy crafting!

{Pictured with BaubleBar + Giles & Brother bracelets.}

Materials / Where to BUY:  Approx. 24″ rhinestone chain (more if you have larger wrists)

Two large barrel endcaps // One yard waxed linen // Two medium jump rings // One lobster clasp

Add a jump ring to each side, and then a clasp to one side… you are done!

    This looks so much more substantial than the other wrapped rhinestone bracelets. Really love this bracelet and how you can change the color of the waxed linen to give it a different look. Posted photos (not tutorial) and link on my blog :)

    Perfect! I love the simplicity of it, not to mention the pretty pastel colour of your waxed linen.
