Pssst...some great new stuff listed in the shop! Frye, Marc Jacobs, anthropologie, and more!
I haven't forgotten! More on that bracelet.
So, like half of the internet, when I saw this DIY on Honestly, WTF, I pretty much lost my cool. I wanted wanted WANTED to make this like yesterday. So I grabbed some brass hex nuts and some butcher's twine and set about making a little one for Adrien and I. I considered these the prototypes:Pretty cool, right?
But I wanted more. Way more hex nuts, less twine, and a different color pairing. So I picked up some great slate grey waxed twine and a ton more hex nuts and set to work. I had to use 9 strands total because the twine was much thinner, but I love the color and that it doesn't fray. I made one for Adrien, too (duh). I think I ended up using about 30 hex nuts. I could have gone with even more.
I am pretty much a huge fan. I am just tying it on right now but I'm thinking about getting a real closure for it. This bracelet cost under $5.00 to make and it gets comments like you wouldn't believe. Now I'm daydreaming about making a graduated necklace version. Swoon.
