I had originally bought the gold safety-pins for my wrap skirt DIY but I had so many extra left that it was worth creating a new DIY with them this week. This DIY is a quick and fun way to make a bracelet and get some wrist action going. Let’s get started!
Here’s what you will need:
- Gold Chain (2 equal pieces long enough to wrap around your wrist)
- Gold Safety-Pins (I used 9)
- Gold Sequins ( I used approx 12 pieces)
- 2 Small Jump-Rings & a Clasp
- Pair of Jewelry Pliers
- E-6000 Glue & toothpicks
Step 1: Using the pliers, join the two gold chains together at each end with a jump-ring.
Step 2: Take the first safety-pin and using a toothpick, add glue on the safety-pin (only on the two straight wire parts that are parallel to each other when the safety-pin is closed).
Step 3: Place the chain in the shape shown in step 3 — with the jump-rings at the two ends. Add the safety pin with the glue in the center of the chain. Make sure the safety-pin is getting glued to both the chains. Let the glue dry for 5-10 minutes.
Step 4: Repeat step 2 and continue gluing the safety-pins to the chain. Make sure to leave at least one chain link gap between the safety-pins when gluing them on the chain so that the bracelet wraps around your wrist nicely when you wear it.
Step 5: Once all the safety-pins are placed on the chain and the glue is dry, add glue to the back of the sequins and stick them on different safety-pins in any pattern you like. Let it dry for 5-10 minutes.
Step 6: Using the pliers, add the clasp to one of the jump-rings at the end of the bracelet. Then you have your own safety-pin & sequin bracelet!
I hope you will give this super easy DIY a try! I am definitely going to make some more bracelets to stack. I love wearing this safety-pin bracelet with my bead & chain bracelet as you can see from the pictures above. On another note, what do you think of the condensed version of the DIY steps i.e. the images for the steps in a collage versus individual images?
