The sun is quite hot today, which also mean its still summer.  We have a long way to go before it starts getting cold again.  Of course summer time usually means a little less fabric, more skin and more accessories.  I know that the recession has everyone on a budget, but it doesn’t necessarily mean looking fashionably attractive has to also be on a budget.  Just turn to DIY projects and you’ll notice that making things on your own can turn out just as great as a finished piece from the department stores. 

This week, we’re going to create and design our own Swarovski bracelet.  To make the bracelet, we’ll be using the Swarovski sew-on stone collection.  Here’s the list of the materials and instructions.

Materials:

Instructions:

  1. Take the Swarovski sew-on stones and lay them on top of the suede patch.  Lay them according to the design you like.
  2. After you finished the design, pick up one stone from the pattern and add glue to the back.  Don’t add too much or the glue will end up showing. 
  3. Lay the stone back down onto the pattern.  Repeat this with all the stones.
  4. Let it to dry for a bout 5 minutes.  After it’s dry, use the scissors and trim the suede.  Follow the pattern you designed.
  5. Now add a dab of glue onto the back side of the patch, and lay the patch on top of the 1/8” suede tape.  Remember to lay it on the center of the tape.
  6. You’re all done.
