Does your jewelry collection have too many ordinary bracelets? How about adding some rhinestones to fit your unique style? After all, a girl can never have too many bracelets or too much bling, can she? Of course not! Here is a fun and quick way to glam up your wardrobe.
For this project I used:
Granite Sculpey clay
Oval shaped cutter 15mm x 9mm
29 - 4 mm silver jump rings
Toggle clasp (bar and ring)
30ss Crystal Rhinestones
Wax tipped tool or tweezers
Roll out sculpey clay to 1/4 of an inch thick. Using your cutter, cut out 9 ovals measuring about 7 inches long.
Insert a jump ring into the short end of each oval. Place on a white sheet of paper on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes in a 275 degree preheated oven. Remove from the oven and allow to cool.
Using your jewelry pliers, open a jump ring, connect two ovals together and close the jump ring. Attach the ring and toggle at each end of the bracelet.
Place a drop of Gem Tac about the size of the rhinestone in the middle of the oval. Using your wax tipped tool, pick up a rhinestone and gently press it into the glue drop. Continue adding rhinestones onto each oval. Allow to dry flat for 24 hours.
Fabulous, easy and sparkly! What more can a girl want?
