Hello everybody, we want to show you another way to use a bicycle tires and Nespresso coffee pods to make a bracelet. The materials we use to make this bracelet are: used Nespresso capsules, cleaned inner tube of a bike, jump rings, lobster clasp, beads of choice, jewelers tools, bigshot and sizzix circles (3/4 inch) die and a circle punch a little smaller than the circles die of 3/4 inch.
