Creative project: the ribbon & bead necklace/bracelet

French style DIY braceletHere is a little DIY project that anyone can make, it’s simple and can be worn as a bracelet, long necklace or choker too. Alternitavely, you can also find the kit to make these or order the ready made bracelet on my Etsy boutique here

All you need is:

- 50cm of Liberty print ribbon: find these online, at Liberty retailers near you or at your local crafts shop or when in France at an Arteis store

- 2 large sized porcelain beads and one silver large link and a few small charms (I use my trademark anchor always, inspired by my tattoos)

- a clasp and link set (to close the bracelet) some jewellery glue (again, refer to HERE to see what kind)

I love Liberty prints and, apart from many boutiques that sell these little coloured delicate trinkets here in Paris, I really do prefer going to the Liberty store on Great Malborough Street in London when I am home, to get some ribbons to use for my little creations. It’s much cheaper to make them ourseleves and all the more personal! Contact me if you want more info on my limited edition range of bracelets and necklaces, inspired by my everyday Paris life!

Life is full of little things and that’s what makes me happy. I am grateful for all these little joys. Happy creating and hope to see your results! xoxoxoxox
