DIY Suede Lace Charm Bracelet

Now as I’ve said before I am NOT a jewelry maker but every now and again I like to have a go at it.  I may not be opening a jewelry boutique on Etsy anytime soon but I manage to make a few custom accessories here and there.  Wait till you see all the AMAZING Tassel jewelry that has been created for this hop!  Stop by Dazzle-it!  and get your tassel on!

As a bonus, when people compliment you on your fabulous handmade bits and baubles it’s nice to be able to say “Thanks I MADE it!”  The immediate response to this statement is generally a shocked, “You MADE that!?!”  To this I politely nod yes but on the inside I’m totally fist bumping myself like my favorite team they just won the Superbowl.  (IF I had a favorite football team which I don’t because I don’t watch football)

Tassels are ALL the rage these days and I was more than happy to jump on the Tassel Train for a blog hop with Dazzle-It.  Not only did participating in this hop recharge my jewelry making mojo it has also given me a deep, deep love for Faux Suede tassels and suede lace.  Dazzel-It has suede lace and tassels in soooo many glorious colors!  You can see them all HERE.

On an aside the tassels are only available wholesale but you WILL want to tassel everything in sight.  “Putting a Tassel on it”  is going to be the new “Put a bird on it”.  You’ll see.  PS that’s my next project so stay tuned…tasselled bird ornaments :)

So anyway, let’s get back to the situation at hand…Suede laced tassel charm bracelets and how to make one!

 

How to make a suede lace charm bracelet

There are tons of suede lace tutorials on the internet and I’m not going to “reinvent the wheel” here, but I will show you where I found my inspiration and how I incorporated my style into this charm bracelet.

I started with two lengths of suede lace, some chain and an “I’ve got this” attitude.  After  two fails I decided it was tutorial time.

All it took was a quick search on Pinterest to find this tutorial at Enjoy the View and I was on my way to becoming a suede lacing pro!

*You can find this tutorial and more jewelry making ideas and inspiration on my Be-Jewelry-Me Pinterest board.

I could have left my suede lace bracelet just like this but I rarely leave things well enough alone. Now that I had suede lacing in the bag I was confidant I could string some beads on this bad boy and really add some pizzazz!

I used bead stringing wire, Hematite star beads, crystals and a couple of word beads from my stash and strung them through the suede laced chain in a simple over-under fashion.  Nothing fancy here folks…it just looks that way :)

Next, I attached a series of jump rings to the ends of my suede laced chain to attach a lock and key toggle clasp.  I’m a big fan of the toggle clasp especially when it doubles as a charm like these.  Speaking of charms (no Suede laced charm bracelet is complete without them) I carefully selected a few favorites from my stash and a fabulous tassel and attached those to the jump rings.

The words I selected for my beads and charms pretty much sum up this entire project.  I wished I could make a fabulous tassel charm bracelet, I believed I could make a fabulous tassel bracelet and in the end I DID make a fabulous tassel bracelet and I hope you will be inspired to make one too!

Here’s a sneak peak of my Tassel Bird Ornament…
