Make: Punk Rock Chic

Inspired by Rock and Roll and Hermes I came up with this bracelet. I love studded items and wanted to find a way to incorporate them into the everyday without looking cheesy.

You will need:
- 1/2" wide leather strapping
- pyramid studs
- embroidery floss
- a flat head screw driver, utility knife, hammer and punch
(if you don't have a punch you can use a drill with a small bit)


Cut a length of strapping to fit your wrist. Now get studding. The studs fit perfectly around the strapping and with a little help from the screwdriver the prongs easily bend.


Next, punch the holes for your embroidery floss ties. Mine are about a 1/4" in and centred.

Last, thread two lengths of embroidery floss through each hole and tie a knot. I also knotted the end of each strand of embroidery floss to keep it from unraveling.

Tie it on and you're done! It is a great gift and easy to make for yourself or a friend. Now you can add a touch of Rock and Roll to any outfit without it looking cheesy or over the top.
