DIY Designer Inspired Bracelet Party – Woven Chain

August 11, 2011 by Trina 19 Comments

Welcome to the PAR-TAY!

What party? The DIY Designer Inspired Bracelet Party!

Several weeks ago some of my Twitter buds and I all started talking about some of the designer bracelets we’d seen and that it would be fun to DIY them.  One thing led to another and we all decided, HEY – we should all DIY our own and then all blog about it on the same day.  Genius!

I’ve been so excited to share this with you since we began talking about it, now the day is finally here!

My designer bracelet inspiration was found through Aurelie Bidermann’s “Do Brazil” bracelet:

After searching for days on eBay, I finally found what I liked.  In the mean time, I did a trial run on a Premier bracelet I’ve had for years and never wear anymore.

 

It turned out great so I was excited to get busy on the one I ordered from eBay.

A week later my bracelet finally arrived in the mail and I got to work using the instructions I found here.

Here is my finished piece:

I think that’s pretty close to the original, don’t you?  And since this was a DIY, I was able to pick a bracelet I liked, and what colors I wanted to use, not to mention save a ton of cash.   The Aurelie Bidermann bracelet retails for 238 €.  I did mine for only $10.00.

Frugal? Check.  Fabulous? CHECK!

  10. they both look awesome!! i am a total bracelet-making addict….my husband thinks i’m NUTS every time i come home from the craft store with a load of beads and ribbon and floss…but he always likes the end results!

  11. Hey Trina love the bracelets! You are so creative and can probably make anything out of nothing, lol! Seriously you inspire me to want to try new things- I would love to try making one of these bracelets- the only problem I have is finding something small enough for my tiny wrists. I love the one you made from your Premier bracelet with the gems dangling from it- just LOVE those colors! I also really like the silver bracelet you made with the bright colors, it turned out amazing, also. Your outfit looked really good with the bracelet and you also did an amazing job with your pics of the bracelet on the glass table. I really love the bracelets and you ladies did an amazing job with this DIY project, and thanks for sharing it with all of us :)

  12. WHAT AN AWESOME IDEA! I love all the bracelets! Yours turned out really well! I love the one you said you got on ebay. It’s lovely. I’m a peacock fanatic too so I love those colours! I have to try making one of these soon!

  13. Oh hang on a minute, I love the first one more than the second one. That’s what I meant. Hahah Love your blog!

  14. These are great!
    You could sell these easily. Good job on a DIY project.
