It's Monday people! You know what that mean! (Don't you?) YOU GUYS. It means that I spent the past 48 hours crafting until my fingers bled. (No that's not true. My finger didn't actually bleed. I was exaggerating to spike your interest.)
Point of the story: You have some very awesome projects to look forward to this week. Just Sayin'.
Today I give you: The SPIKED BRACELET.
(Did you see how I used the word "spike" in the first paragraph. It was a pun. Clever, eh? Whatever. I'm proud of my punning skillz.)
Boom! A fantastic and violent accessory to match your spiked business holder. Snaps for coordination!
1. Metal spikes from M&J
2. A clasp from Toho
3. A metal ring from Toho
4. A purple chain from Toho
5. Pliers from a local hardware store
Thread the clasp onto the loop.
Thread the first link onto the loop as well.
Use the pliers to close the loop.
Use your wrist to find the proper length and where to cut the chain.
Use the pliers to cut the chain to fit.
Unscrew a spike.
Place the screw through a link in the chain.
Screw the spike back onto the screw. Screw, screw, screw! Repeat for the remaining links in the chain. Leave the last link without a spike.
AND TA DA!
I made a spiked bracelet!
This is what it looks like on my hand.
And this is what it looks like on my hand while I pet Lola.
What a great gift for your edgy (and by edgy I mean angst-y) amigos! See, I'm full of great ideas.
GUESS WHAT?!?!? This baby is up on Etsy! So you don't even have to e-me if you want one for yourself. (You do have to e-me if you make one for yourself because I want to see pictures! Duh.)
