In this Instructable I'll show you how to make a unique bracelet - made from a single piece of lace, a locket and some beads. Most of the items used here I already had at home. You won't have the same materials as I do, but hopefully this Instructable will inspire you to use what you have to create something even more unique and beautiful! The locket in the center of the bracelet is something that I had and had never worn - as I wear one small necklace all the time and don't like to change it out. So, I wanted to use the locket and transform it into a bracelet that I could wear!

Step 1: Materials to Use for Bracelet

Materials:
  • lace
  • beads
  • thread & needle for sewing (I used a clear thread)
  • Clasp for back of bracelet - anything will work
  • scissors
  • I used bias tape binding for the edges of the bracelet
  • other embellishments
  • locket if you have one
  • anything else you like to add
Tips:
The materials you have and use will vary and differ from mine. Using beads that look like pearls can really be beautiful as well. Be creative, yet try to be cohesive in keeping with a similar theme. It's real easy to make this look tacky! I actually added more beads and tried to make it more interesting but I crossed over into the "tacky" grey area - where it just didn't look good anymore. I removed some beads and it looked much better! So try to keep it looking clean and classy!

Step 2: Measure and Cut the Lace

The first thing you'll want to do is drape the lace over your wrist and around - to get a measurement of the length. Then, cut it to size - taking into account the clasp which will be added.

Wow thanks Penolopy so much!!! That is a big compliment coming from you! :) And it took me a min. to think of something to use for the edges to keep it from fraying and to look better - the bias tape works great!
I just love antique/vintage-looking jewelry; big weak spot for me :D
