Welcome To The 93rd Masterpiece Monday!




 Faux Leather and  Rhinestone Bracelet Tutorial


 I already had some black vinyl fabric on hand and decided to make something fun.

I used the materials below but, please DON'T use a black marker. Later after I wore this and my wrist perspired, my wrist was covered in black marker, lovely.

Fortunately, it washed right off, but still!  I would suggest a pencil or something like that.

 My lines weren't perfectly spaced with the marker, but I adjusted it a little when I cut it and it came out pretty good. The most important thing is to measure it for your wrist size and decide how long you want the slices to go.
I tapered in the the solid back portion of the bracelet.
                                                                                   

I sewed on some snaps, which was easy due to the very thin vinyl I used.

I poked the rhinestone holders through the back by hand, which was easy, again because of the thinness of the vinyl.  I set in the rhinestones and closed the prongs with a butter knife.
                                                                               

This would be fun with other colors of vinyl and beads or buttons too.



I might make a few more of these as Christmas gifts I think!

The bracelet is so pretty! You did an awesome job! One of my girlfriends sells jewelry with one of the trunk show/home parties, and they had bracelets similar last year ...and they were pretty expensive!

...Thanks for hosting the party! :)
