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.

Ahhhhhhh,I want this so badly !! Ohhhh man,it's so beautiful :)) I missed the 1st one, but do hope I could have that !

And cold welding is a cool tip girl ! Thanks alot for sharing ~


Ooohhh... Thanks for the tip! Do you think this would work if I bought some leather loafers and attempted to make a poor man's version of the Louboutin "rollerball" studded loafers?! That would be hot.

(I came across your blog while browsing chictopia and I'm so glad I did! Definitely a daily read for me :-)

Really like this bracelet. The porcupine spikes, the proportion of them, so that they almost interfere with the movement of your fingers but don't by just a wee bit, is so cool. I've done some DIY but it's a bit more conceptual and not really wearable (like a shoe out of cigarettes, which is over on Anyway, nice to find you, really lovely composition on the photos too.

I looooove those bracelets!! That's so awesome that you made them! Yesterday, I spent a long time going through your entire blog, and I must say that you are such an inspiration! I love when people do different things with their clothes and you are so very creative!

I am really loving this look, and the bracelet is no exception! I also really dig the packaging on the welding materials.

I would first like to say how creative you are in terms of fashion and your diy skills. =)If only I could make something as beautiful with my own two hands lol. Keep up the good work and keep posting!
