Jewelry Time –Tim Style

My sister Dianna and I got together Monday to make some bracelets for Christmas…you know, trying to be ahead of the holidays anyway I can!  We made bracelets using some  old jewelry and they turned out great!  (sorry – don’t want to show them right now because they’re gifts).  Since I had my jewelry stuff out, I decided to use some of Tim’s embellishments to make a bracelet.

I started with a plain bracelet I’d been using for my other bracelets.IMG_1881 

I scoured through all my “Tim treasures” and pulled out what I thought would be fun to use.  I thought the buttons would look darling on the bracelet, so I chose those first.

I then decided on the dangling pieces and laid them out to see how they would look before I started attaching them.

I snipped the loops off the back of all the buttons and then ran my Dremel over it to smooth them down.  I decided it might be easier to hang the danglers before I glued on the buttons, so I attached them first. 

Sorry – I didn’t realize the pictures I took at this stage turned out blurry until I downloaded all of them at the end of the project!

I then used Beacon’s Jewelry Glue to attach the buttons.  It takes 24-48 hours for it to set up completely, so here is a picture of the bracelet while the buttons were setting  up.IMG_1887

I didn’t have a wrist to hang it on for a picture except mine, and I’m not talented enough to have it on my wrist and take the photo.

I thought it was a fun project and it didn’t take long at all!  I wish all my projects could go so fast.
