Style Hurricane’s plumbing bracelets

I’m really digging these plumbing leather bracelets by Style Hurricane. Using hardware in jewellery making is not a new idea, but these bracelets really do look professionally done! Probably not a surprise since Anni designs jewellery for a living 🙂 Which is why this is the only DIY in the round-up that doesn’t come with full instructions- the link to Moody magazine doesn’t bring us to the actual DIY- but I figure it’s simple enough. Get flat leather cord and some plumbing supplies, then glue together. A little work for a lot of style.

Thanks I made it rhinestone cuff

OK, so this is more a bangle than a bracelet, but the point is, it goes around the wrist and looks amazing, right? 🙂 The cuff base is easily obtainable from stores such as Primark, New Look, Forever 21… and shoe clips- do a good deed and pop into your local charity shop! 🙂 This bangle would work really well with denim jeans and a simple tank!

Honestly WTF DIY wrap bracelet

And we’re gong to wrap up with another Honestly WTF DIY bracelet. To be honest, this wasn’t one of my 1st choices for the Top 3 bracelet round-up but when I saw that it had 29,000 likes on FB…. well, the masses have spoken!! I mean, Honestly WTF is an uber popular site but its other tutorials have a couple of 100 or a couple of 1000 likes… 29k is a whole new ballgame! I wonder what it is about this piece that resonates so much with readers? Lol, you know, a few years back I actually made something similar (without having seen this DIY) but didn’t do anything about it. Now if I had blogged about it… who knows where this blog might be today 🙂 Shows you how important it is to get out there and DO Stuff! 🙂  My great failing is that I love procrastinating and doing things “in my own time”… Woulda, coulda, shoulda…. 😛

A Pair & A Spare’s rhinestone earrings

I’ve been blogging in secret from my friends but, this week, I gave in and told one of them (Yvonne) about it. When she visited the site, her 1st comment was “you really like bling.” To be honest, I’m not sure how it’s evident from the first page, but I guess since these jewelled statement earrings are in my Top 3, Yvonne may have a point 😛 Full tutorial and photo credit on http://apairandasparediy.com/2013/04/diy-jeweled-statement-earrings.html

Minted Strawberry Anthropologie inspired dagger earrings

What is so amazing about this DIY is that it’s made from popsicle sticks! Which immediately resonated with me, as I had 3 sticks of Magnum last week and was just wondering what I could DIY with the ice-cream sticks! 🙂 Full tutorial and photo credit to the lovely Aki at http://mintedstrawberry.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/diy-dagger-earring-studs.html#.VeC9Ousk_ww
