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

  • 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
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!
I love it ... sure going to make one... XOXO <br>
