Project DIY Punk Revival Bracelet | M&J Trimming

This leather bracelet is easy to make using the leather wrap cord from the Luxe Punk Collar, and the spikes from the Oversized Chain Pin. Just cut the cord in half, and seal each end under an end cap with E-6000. Once the glue is dry, create a double-strand bracelet by attaching both cords to one jump ring on each end of the clasp.

Finally, create a little charm by using a jump ring and the spikes, and add on wherever you like!

Project DIY Punk Revival Multi-Metal Chain | M&J Trimming

This heavy metal necklace will definitely make a statement!

Just follow the directions for the choker, and continue adding chains using the components from the Spike Tassel Pendant and Oversized Chain Pin projects. Use as many or as few chains as your heart desires!

Project DIY Punk Revival Chain | M&J Trimming

For this long statement piece, take the silver chain from the Spike Tassel Pendant, and the black chain and spikes from the Oversized Chain Pin. Attach the silver chain to the black one using one large jump ring. On another large jump ring, add all three spikes and attach to the end of the black chain.  We used the oversized gold clasp from the choker to finish it off in the back.

Project DIY Punk Revival Rhinestone Pearl Necklace | M&J Trimming

Going for the layered look? Make these two pieces! For the pin choker, use the leather cord from the Luxe Punk Collar and attach the large pin from the Oversized Chain Pin using some jump rings!

For the pearl necklace use the pearl strand from the Spike Tassel Pendant project. Simply leave it uncut—or adjust to the length you like. Attach the rhinestone spike chain from the Luxe Punk Collar by using 2 jump rings.  We used a lobster clasp from our Starter Kit to finish it off in the back.

Project DIY Punk Revival Custom Pin | M&J Trimming

For this super chic pin that you can attach to your sweater, boots or bag, start by making the tassel from the Spike Tassel Pendant. Then you just need to attach it to the oversized pin using a jump ring!
