After reading the post about my little pirate bracelet, Lexie, my new favourite DIY-er, upped and turned her great-grandmother’s antique Thai bracelet into a very modern-looking wrist wrap.
The gold-plated piece was missing a clasp so Lexie wrapped it twice around her wrist and tied it with a bold red ribbon. “It clashes brilliantly with my hair (since my hair is pretty much the same colour as Jessi’s) but as long as I don’t hold it up to my head I think I should be fine,” she says.
Lexie, it turned out so beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing!
Beautiful! I love unique things that you know no one else will have.
Me too! That’s why I’m going to try to make something similar to Lexie’s bracelet. As soon as I find the perfect piece to make it with.
I’ve been meaning to do something like this for a while. I might have mentioned I did a charm leather bracelet similar to your pirate one a few years back. All the places I get my materials from were closed during August though, so hopefully I can start doing a little DIY next month :)
TALK about a FABULOUS idea, this is solely one!
Now I’m anxious to create a wrist wrap! Thank YOU for sharing!:}
Haute — that’s the beautiful thing about Paris. In July everything’s on sale. In August everything’s closed
Gerri — send me photos if you make one
Ooh what a wonderful diy, that is so pretty.
