I have wanted to make my own stud bracelet for about a year now, but I could never find screw studs anywhere except online. One thing I have to omit, I am not a big fan of ordering Online. I like to be able to go to a place and pick them up myself so I know what I am getting.
While shopping Michaels last week, I stumbled upon some Screw studs both round and pointy and also the screw button clasps. My GLEE was uncontainable as I made a loud gasp. Yeah... craft supplies effect me like that.
Things you need.
- Scrap leather( you can buy this at Hobby Lobby or Michaels)
- Leather hole punch* Michaels
- Tandy Rhinestone Rivets * Michales or HERE
- Pointy studs *Michales or HERE
- Clasp *Michaels or HERE
- X-acto Knife
Measure your leather 3/4 of an inch wide and 7 to 7 1/2 inches long.
Using your knife cut out your band.
Take your leather hole punch and punch out a hole on one end.
Attach your button rivet
Mark your other end with a small X.
Cut that out.
Experiment where you want your studs to go.
Once you have a plan mark it on your band.
Punch your hole and add your crystal rivets.
flip your bracelet over and tap lightly with a rubber mallet
or a small hammer to secure your crystal pieces.
Now add your studs. Screw them down tight.
Easy and fun not to mention a little edgy.
Have a Wonderful Day.
Lots of <3,
