|Titto jewelry set|
When I saw this in a newspaper (76 euros, seriously?!?), I knew I could make something similar myself - so I did. Instead of a necklace, I decided I would make bracelets - I wear those more often.
These are really easy to whip together, in no time :-).
I don't really know if anyone needs a tutorial, but this is how I made them: I bought some leather strand (I bought 1,5 meter, which allowed me to make three of these :-) ) and used beads I had laying around.You also need a clasp, 2 jump rings and 2 clamps to hold the strands together.
Start by just cutting strands that are the size of your wrist. The strands can be a little bigger, depending on how loose you want the bracelet to be around your wrist. Do keep in mind there will be a clasp, so the bracelet will be somewhat looser, even if you take strands the size of your wrist. Take as many strands as you want: the bracelet with green beads has four, the one with the white beads has three, and I'll make another one using the two strands I have left. It's really up to you and what you like best.
Add some beads to each strand. Again, it's up to you and what you prefer. I had 5 beads per strand on the bracelet with the green beads because those are bigger, around 8 per strand on the bracelet with the white beads. You can't really go wrong here :-).
Almost finished already :-). First, you have to keep your strands together using a clamp. I then twisted the strands as I wanted, tangling them a bit. Then I attached the other ends of the strands together, again using a clamp.
At one end, I attached a little jump ring to the clamp; at the other end, I attached a little jump ring and a lobster clasp. And that's it, you're done!
Thanks for stopping by!
