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!
