DIY plumbing supplies bracelets

I did a little DIY for the december issue of MOOD magazine which has already came out. My obsession over wearing many rings at once is definitely over, guess braceletes are my new love.
I got the idea when I was in Copenhagen for fashion week and saw Hanneli wearing similar bracelets by Danish designer Yvonne Koné. I thought they would make a good and cheap DIY project;)
You just need some brass fittings and compression nuts from the plumbing section and a old leather belt for making this one.

  18. @Lara Maria: I used some old belts

    @Anonymous: Ma nüüd ei tea, mis su küsimus on, aga oletan... Ma ei olegi väitnud, et disainisin need ise. DIY projektide mõte on (vähemalt minu jaoks) alati olnud, et kuidas tehale omale kerge vaevaga ja peaaegu olematute kulutustega mõni designer item - antud juhul siis need 1300 krooni maksavd käevõrud. Muidugi oleks olnud kena lisada viide disainerile, kuid unustasin selle suures tuhinas. Vabandust segaduse pärast! Lisasin selle nüüd;)

  20. The must have accessory for your fashionable plumber. If you could reach students on plumbing courses you could stand to make a killing. Especially with the increase of female students of late...

  21. i know it's a little late, but how did you close this bracelet? with the old belt lock or with something else??

    ReplyDelete
  22. I never thought that plumbing supplies can be used as a styling products for everyone. The bracelet was so cool and unique. You may also use some old plumbing supplies and just put some designs and arts to make it looks new and fabulous.

  33. Another good thing in buying and wearing trendy beaded jewelry is you do not want to spend thousands of greenbacks to have people who will appreciate your look and your image. Fashionable beaded jewelry like necklaces, earrings and bracelets are available in wide variety of styles and designs. You'll only spend one or two dollars to few hundred bucks depending on the kind of materials you select for your jewelry.

  34. This is an interesting idea. I know a couple of plumbers who might frown on this kind of thing because they know that plumbing supplies in Medicine Hat should be used for plumbing, not fashion. Nonetheless, this is a very creative idea.

    I happened to visit the site www.steelsparrow.com and found they supply quality Engineering products. I was searching for Eyebolts and found they have a good variety of Eyebolts and I got through www.steelsparrow.com. Their service is best and feel that this is a useful resource for companies like us instead of searching the entire market and wasting our time and energy.
