DIY Floating Stud Bracelets

I'm not usually the one to go for New Year Resolutions - they're so passe (Okay I never stick to them!), but this time I decided to give them one more try. Not the usual for me - run more, be nice (I am, I swear) etc etc - but one that benefits everyone - to minimize wastage.... especially of material, emotion and time.

Keeping in line with this promise, today's DIY is strictly from stuff you can find around the house.

Here's what you'll need:

  • Clear straps (Preferably the free ones that are too flimsy to actually use)
  • Pyramid and spike studs (Taken off weirdly embellished clothes)
  • Lobster clasp, 12 mm
  • Clamp ends
  • 2 small jump rings 6 mm
  • 1 large jump ring 10 mm
  • Super glue
  • Scissors

Step 1: Measure the straps around your wrists and cut to length about 3/4 inch less than your measurement.

Step 2: Place the strap on a flat surface and squeeze a drop of super glue at its center. Carefully place the stud there and let it dry. 

Step 3: Glue studs at regular gaps about 1/2 inches apart, leaving a 1/2 inch gap from the ends of the strap.

Step 4: Add in the clamps at both ends of the strap. Insert a drop of super glue to seal.

 Step 5: With the small jump rings, attach the lobster clasp and the end ring.

Mix 'n match your edgy bracelets :)
