DIY: Rope & Crystal Cuff

COFFEE_3Did anyone else catch MoutonCollet’s collection on Moda Operandi?  I did, and (surprise surprise) I wanted absolutely everything.  Especially this bracelet.  I decided to try my hand at making a version… using rope – and a pretty crystal that fell off a necklace I’d bought ages ago at Forever 21.  This is an easy one… and I’m pretty pleased with the result!

    This is so pretty! The rope adds a rustic/elegant touch.

    This is so pretty, Grace! My Forever 21 pieces are always falling apart, so reusing them is a great idea. Plus, this looks so simple!
