A few weeks ago I got a package from a blogger friend of mine who had just gone through her stash and sent me stuff she wasn’t going to use. It was a very happy day for mail. She’s a big scrap-booker and sent me some stamps, trims and embellishments. One of the goodies I received were these little wood die-cut cameras. Since I’m a photography lover I knew that I wanted to make something to wear to represent!
- Jewelry Pliers
- Wooden Camera Scrapbook Embelishments
- 1/16th drill bit
- Wood Tint/Acrylic Paint
- Foam brush
Step 1: Measure around your wrist. This is going to be the total length of the bracelet, plus 1/4 to 1/2 in. added for comfort.
Step 2: Measure out the length of chain (with the lobster clasp attached) so it equals your measurement from step 1. Snip the chain down and attach your closure piece to the end.
Step 3: Drill a small hole in the corner of each charm you’re going to use.
You may want to play around with the placement/ layout of your charms before deciding which ones to use.
Optional Step: Use wood stain or acrylic paint to color every or every other charm. I decide to alternate because I didn’t want to completely do away with the natural wood grain.
Step 4: Put a jump ring though the hole in the charms and attach them to various links in the bracelet.
Til Next Time!
