DIY: Crystal Cuff

FLORAL_2You could say I’m on a bit of a crystals kick… first this necklace, and now today’s project!  Today’s DIY could almost be called a mini DIY, as it is just so simple and easy to make.  I’ve long ogled cuff bracelets with rough cut jewels by Kelly Wearstler (and Chanel for that matter) and thought I’d try making one.  I’m so happy with how this one turned out and have been wearing it over and over again…  it’s so lovely all by itself, with a pretty summer dress.  (Sometimes its nice to not think about stacking and just opt for one simple cuff, no?)

    I love this look- that cuff is beautiful on it’s own but the rough crystals take it to a new level!
