So I only of three people in my family read my blog. This is sad because, well, I only know of three people in my family who read my blog. Even though I post cute pictures of the kids. And show what we eat for dinner. However, this comes in handy during seasonal projects because I can post what we’ve made for family members and they are none the wiser. I placed an order with Goody Beads a few weeks ago, and I purchased a cute Nana charm that I ran across. So I have already crafted an Easy Mother’s Day Bracelet for my kid’s “Nana.” And the best part? I only needed three supplies! That’s a beginner jewelry project that even I can handle.
- Nana slider charm
- Approx. 12″ of 5mm Plain Flat Black Leather– this will vary according to the wrist size of the person for whom you’re making the bracelet.
- Small Silver Bar Clasp
Of course, I needed the standard scissors and jewel glue, too!
Begin by cutting the leather a little longer then the wrist size.
Slide the charm onto the leather. Then take a super blurry picture.
Squeeze a generous amount of glue inside one of the clasp ends and insert one end of the leather into the clasp. Hold it for a few minutes to set. Let dry. Repeat with the opposite end.
I’ve made a couple different east bracelets like this. It’s an excellent way to have a customized, handmade bracelet for anyone in the family. Even if they don’t realize that you know how to make stuff.
