Remember that I made this bracelet a few months ago? I actually had leftover materials from that project and made a second one (shown above) that's just been sitting around on a table in the closet. I'm giving this one away, so don't be shy, say hi and I'll select a recipient.
Since people have asked me how I make some of my pieces, I'll also throw in a tip. It's not hard and you don't need much equipment either. Originally I thought I had to solder everything together, but a quick alternative is cold welding. I hopped over to the hardware store, had a conversation/debate on cold welding materials and epoxies with the salesperson and walked out with JB Weld. Sure, it's not as strong and durable as the almighty solder, but given its ease of use and economy, it's a pretty darn good option.
Also, according to the packaging it's good for "mechanics, farmers, and homeowners". You know, make some bracelets, fix a tractor axle.
And cold welding is a cool tip girl ! Thanks alot for sharing ~

enjoy your day lady.
I also went here from Chictopia and your site is totally going to be one of my daily reads.
I am always so amazed at your creativity! Your DIYs are so amazing but sadly i am located in Australia.
I want to try some of your DIY projects so much but alas Austalia has no good craft shops. I went looking for some studs once to no avail!!
In the meantime i'll just admire your beautiful art =)
Lot's of love
P.S- Please make more DIY's! you're such a good crafter

Thank you for your talent and the inspiring mini-project of your.
