For the Bracelet:

Tools:
  • Leather Hole Punch
  • Hammer or Rubber Mallet
  • Scissors / Rotary Cutter
  • Ruler
  • Snap Setter (I purchased mine here)
  • Painters Tape

Materials:
  • Leather (my cuff measured 8 1/4" x 3")
  • Snaps - 2 sets (I purchased mine here)
  • 131 Square 4MM Black Rhinestones
  • 140 Square 4MM Orange Rhinestones
  • 145 Square 4MM Yellow Rhinestones
  • Glue (I used Eco-Flo Leather Weld which can be found here)
  • Scrap Paper
For the Rhinestone Picker:
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Skewer (or some kind of stick)
Additional Notes:

Rhinestones: 
I purchased my rhinestones here in the following colors: 500 AB Square Rhinestone - Lemon, 500 AB Square Rhinestone - Orange, and 500 AB Square Rhinestone - Black. Since they are AB colors they have a cool rainbow effect and look awesome in the sun! They were about $5.00 each with free shipping, and will be enough to make 3 bracelets.

Leather: I purchased my leather here for $3.00. There is a store near by so I was able to get a remnant piece which was big enough to cut out 4 leather cuff pieces. If you don't live next to a leather store, upholstery shops will usually have some on hand or you could also use vinyl which you can find at most fabric stores.

Snaps:  The snaps I bought were very easy to insert. I originally tried out another kind of snaps that are sold at most craft stores (you can find them here) and had a really hard time using them, I ruined quite a few sets and was never happy with the way any of them turned out. After looking online most people recommended buying expensive tools to set them properly. I was incredibly happy with the snaps I ended up using for this bracelet, they were super easy to install with just the basic tools and I didn't ruin 1 set : ) If you've ever had this problem as well I would recommend trying these out.

Congratulations on being a finalist in the jewelry contest!!
