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 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 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.
