DIY Bracelets - Guest Post


Hi Everyone!  

This is Yolanda from Hope, Wish, Dream and Love and Fanciful Wishes.  While Heidi is transitioning to her new home, I wanted to share some DIY Bracelets I've been obsessed with the past few weeks.



To clarify, I am a newbie (I've only been at this for about 3 weeks) at jewelry making so it's taken a lot of patience and practice but it's been so much fun.  I look up tutorials on Pinterest and Google and learn for free. The girls at the bead shop I frequent are always a big help with my questions also.  Right now my biggest seller is the sideways cross macrame bracelet.

Why did I get into it?  I'm almost 8 months pregnant and bored at home.  So thought I'd make my own bracelets since Pinterest got me obsessed with them.  I didn't think people would be interested in my bracelets, but they are and I'm absolutely grateful.  

My recent project is making the Chan Luu inspired wrap bracelets.  So far it's coming along but practice makes perfect!  I'm also always looking for ways to make a sliding knot for a clasp, or learning a new technique for making bracelets.



Want to make your own fabulous arm candy?  Check out the tutorial links I posted below!

Here are some of the tutorials I used for these bracelets:
