Here I am in the middle of an April snowstorm creating the most colorful bracelet!
These DIY slider bracelets are so easy to make. Cousin sent me a set that included leather, slides and clasps. They have a how-to video and many samples already on line for you to see.
My metal slide (shown circled) is already pretty, but I wanted to personalize it a little.
So out came a very special box of beads. This is my stash of beads from Paris. I buy a little every year from the same vendor in the antique market and I always feel special when I add them to something I am wearing.
The shape of the slider made me think of a Paris window box. I wire wrapped my beads in place with some very thin wire.
Once I was done wire wrapping all I had to do was slide my new metal slide onto the leather and also slide on the two matching smaller components. I glued on my clasp and waited for everything to be dry.
Isn't if wonderful? This is the easiest DIY ever!
