First, the famous "nut" bracelet seen here.
I ended up making two bracelets and a necklace. I am SO in love with these. They are kind of edgy, but they look expensive and shiny (and we all know shiny is important). I'm not going to go through the steps since the original tutorial's linked. This did take some getting used to; It took me a bit to find a twine solid enough to hold the nuts in place. This is all starting to sound a little weird..
Some finished/modeling pics:
Next up: baseball bracelets found here. All you need is an Exacto knife and a baseball! I made these from a baseball that I got from my first tour that has sentimental value. I'm really not going to do anything with the actual ball (it's been sitting in a drawer for almost 2 years), so this project was appropriate. It was a little harder to dig the exacto knife into the baseball than I thought, but not so bad. Now my best friend Tiffany (who was touring with me) and I will have matching sentimental friendship bracelets. Cute, I know:
Side note: It has been mentioned that I chopped up a signed ball for my bracelet. The ball has more value to me as something useful. A thought was to make the other leather part into a cuff, but it seems my excess material from this ball was thrown away while I was away.
Have you made anything on Pinterest lately? I know I'm not alone in my obsession!
