We recently stumbled upon this DIY cuff on I Am Momma – Hear Me Roar, and instantly fell in love with the adorable bracelet. Cheri used gems from our store to create this cute cuff, and we adore the way she arranged them in a scattered formation. Now we’re dying to make one of our own! See the full tutorial at I am Momma – Hear Me Roar.
Inspiration & Realisation is one of our favorite DIY blogs, and we’ve really been loving Donatella’s latest project. She used round leather cord and braided leather bolo from our store to create this lovely Bottega Veneta inspired leather bracelet. Doesn’t it look even better than the designer version?

We can’t get enough of the friendship bracelet trend that we’ve been seeing everywhere. But of course we couldn’t just rock a plain friendship bracelet without adding some DIY embellishment! So we whipped up two different studded friendship bracelets to add to your stack of arm candy. Check them out below.
1. Gather your supplies. All you need is a friendship bracelet and a pack of pyramid studs.
2. Starting at one end of the friendship bracelet, push the stud into the bracelet. Make sure the prongs go all the way through.
3. Flip the bracelet over and push down each of the prongs to hold the stud in place. You can use your fingers, but you may want to use something like a butter knife to push the sharp prongs down.
4. Continue to add studs to your bracelet until you reach the end. Now you’re all done!
1. Get your supplies. You need a friendship bracelet, glue, and white round nailheads.
2. Apply a small amount of glue to the back of one of the nailheads. You may want to use a toothpick to do this.
3. Gently place the nailhead near one end of the friendship bracelet. Hold in place for a few seconds while the glue dries.
4. Use the same technique to apply the rest of the nailheads to the bracelet.

This bracelet is essence of summer: natural materials, a bit of sparkle, and a fresh mint color come together for some arm candy that’s sure to be a new favorite. Keep reading for how it’s made.
Tools and Materials:
25mm herringbone trim, in mint
36mm jute braid
1/8″ rhinestone trim (1/2 yard)
Embroidery thread in Aqua
Sew-on snap closure
E6000 super glue
Cut a piece of jute trim long enough to wrap around your wrist, plus an inch extra. Cut a piece of herringbone ribbon to the same length.
Measure and cut another piece of the herringbone ribbon as long as the width of the trim. Use fray check or a lighter to melt down and fuse the ends to prevent unraveling.
Spread a layer of super glue on the ribbon.
Place on one end of jute and stick to the trim.
Place larger piece of herringbone on the jute, and fold the smaller piece of trim and glue over the trim. Repeat on the other end of the trim.
Use a clip to hold in place until the glue dries completely.
Sew one half of the snap closure to the outside of the trim.
Sew the other half of the snap to the inside of the trim, making sure to line up the snaps before sewing in place.
Cut two pieces of rhinestone trim to fit on the ribbon.
Sew the trim onto the bracelet, with stitches in between the stones.
Sew the second row of rhinestones.

With summer just around the corner, there’s no better time to be DIYing some colorful bracelets. We picked up some rhinestone trim the other day and got inspired to make this rhinestone wrap bracelet. It’s super easy to make, so you can whip up a bunch for your friends. Follow our tutorial below and let us know how it turns out!
1. Take one of the pieces of suede trim and pull the end through the metal closure. Hold it in place by tying a knot around the suede with the cord.
2. Begin wrapping the cord around the suede.
3. Once you have wrapped the cord around a few times, place the rhinestone trim on top of the suede trim. Continue wrapping the cord around, this time wrapping it over the rhinestone trim to hold it in place.
4. Keep wrapping until you reach the end of the trim, or until it is long enough to fit around your wrist. Like you did at the beginning, bring the end of the suede through the other side of the metal closure and wrap the cord around to hold it in place. Tie a knot to keep it secure. Then repeat the process to create the second strand. Now you’re ready to wear your bracelet!
