Crafting Action! Easy, sparkly bracelets

I saw this video on YouTube last week, and I got the fever to make this bracelet:


Super awesome video from LaquerandLace, by the way. Very clear, and if you have any fabric, jewelry, or even yarn crafting experience, this shouldn't be too difficult at all.

A few notes:

  1. I made my bracelet shorter, especially for my first try
  2. I laid the crystal chain face down on my crafting surface, applied a dot of Gem-Tac to the back of each crystal, then laid the cording on top. I found this to be easier.
  3. If you are doing the shorter version, make the crystal chain shorter than your wrist circumference so it isn't too loose. I think my peachy one will look great stacked, but a little too large on its own.
And now for the pictures!

This is how the square knot technique she shows in the video turned out.

So fun, and so easy.



  1. This is amazing! I want to try making these when I get the time!

    It seems like something great to wear or even give as a gift.

    And Oh, I'm Cynthia. I found you because you're my partner for the coffee mug swap. I hope you liked it!

    1. It was adorable! I'm going to blog about it tomorrow. Yours is on the way!
