How To: Studded Bracelet




Introduction: How To: Studded Bracelet

About: College kid, Pizza delivery pro, graphic design and skater.

Well as always necessity is the mother of invention and since my schools dress code got even more conformist i needed to come up with new ways to break it. And it seams like the perfect time to do this since the belt reuse contest is started so time to kill two birds with one stone.

Note: no birds were harmed in the making of this instructible.

Step 1: Materials

Ok well  this is pretty strait forward as far as making it all you need.
old studded belt (plain would work but i already had a vegan (non-leather) neon green studded belt)
fastener (i plan on just holding it together with a nut and a bolt for a cooler look)
leather hole punch or large nail to make holes
music (i went with don't you fake it (deluxe edition) by red jumpsuit apparatus)
Also would not hurt to have a tape measure or an old bracelet to size the new one off of

If you started with a plain belt you'll also need studs, i get all of mine at

Step 2: Cutting

Either measure your wrist or use a band that fits and then fin a section of the belt that has good studs (my belt i wore for like a year so most of the studs are crushed in or are missing half the paint) then cut it and add a bit of length for final size changes.

Step 3: Making Holes

Ok now its time to make holes for the fasteners. Just take the leather punch or nail and push it through where you want the hole then take the scissors and enlarge the hole until the screw fits through with some effort then do the same for the other side. Then put the screw through the hole then screw the nut onto the other side
