The past few weeks have been full of life changes and realizations. I was accepted to graduate school. YAY!! I also started to book all of my summer adventures in Southeast Asia. Then I realize I only had 6 weeks left in South Korea teaching all the little crazy monsters <3. The next 6 months are going to be insanely exciting. I’ll finish my year and a half teaching in South Korea. I’ll spend a month and a half traveling in Southeast Asia. I’ll return home to the States. I’ll move to New York City. And I’ll start graduate school. To be honest, I’m a little scared, but mostly excited!!
Anyway, I was rummaging though all my craft supplies and I found extra leather for this bracelet. Not wanting to waste any of my supplies, I decided to make a wrap bracelet with the remaining leather. I have a feeling my DIYs will be focused on using up the supplies I have.
- Leather strip
- Long rectangular metal bead
- Metal compression beads
- Ribbon endings
- Jump rings
- Lay out your rhinestone pattern and get ready to glue.
- Glue the rhinestones onto the large rectangular bead.
- Let dry for a few hours.
- Thread your beads onto the leather strip. Put the large rhinstoned bead off center. This will ensure the bead is on the top of your wrist when you put on the bracelet.
- Put a dab of glue on the inside of the ribbon ending.
- Press the ribbon ending closed around the end of the leather strip. You can use your fingers or a pair of pliers.
- Use the jump rings to attach the closure to the ribbon endings.
- Finished and read to wear!
