{DIY Bracelets… read on!}

Today’s DIY is a fun little collaboration with my friends at The Everygirl!  I created a necklace for them (the tutorial is over on their site… right here), and a bracelet over here to match it.  I love rope jewelry.  Always have, always will.  It isn’t quite as trendy as some of the other projects I feature here, but it is very me… and reminds me of home (Cape Cod).  The project was really inspired by this pin.  I was unable to source patterned rope, so I settled for this luscious felt rope (so soft)!  Separately, if you know where to buy great patterned rope, I’d love to hear it in the comments section!

Materials/Where to Buy:  Rope (about 5-6″) // Felt Rope (about 3-4”) // Large endcaps 12x16mm (2) // Medium Barrel end caps 6mm (4) // Lobster Clasp // Jump Rings (5) // Sharp Scissors – I got my gold ones here // E6000 Glue  // Kebab Stick (not pictured) // Pliers (not pictured)

Start by trimming your felt rope.

Using the kebab stick, apply a drop of glue to each large endcap, and stuff the rope ends into it.

bracelet5

Trim your rope into two pieces, each 2-3″ long.

bracelet6

Stuff the ends (using glue + your kebab stick) into the smaller endcaps.  Allow everything to sit and dry for an hour or two.

    This is so darling! I love that you went with a nice, simple design. As much fun as bold, statement, trendy jewelry is – sometimes it’s nice to go back to basics 🙂
