DIY Spiked Bracelets

Sometimes I just love completing quick and easy DIY projects. I spotted these small spikes tucked away in a Sham Shui Po haberdashery and impulsively bought a handful. Not sure initially what I was going to do with them, I decided to make a couple of spiked bracelets – perfect when stacked with multiple chains, bangles and other bracelets. You know me – I’m a sucker for arm candy stacking!

What you need:

  • Thin fishing wire
  • 2 clam-shell bead tips
  • 15-18 spiked beads (depends on your wrist width)
  • 4 medium jump rings
  • 1 lobster clasp
  • Scissors
  • Pliers

How to:

  1. Measure out and cut the fishing wire – slightly longer than the circumference of your wrist.
  2. Thread one end of the fishing wire through the middle of one clam-shell bead tip. Tie a triple knot in the end of the wire.
  3. Using the pliers, close and secure the clam-shell bead tip. Cut away any slack fishing wire.
  4. Thread the spiked beads onto the wire.
  5. Once all the beads are threaded, thread the wire through the remaining clam-shell bead tip.
  6. Tie a triple knot in the end of the wire.
  7. Close and secure the clam-shell bead tip. Cut away any slack fishing wire.
  8. Using the pliers hook a jump ring through the loop on the bead tip, hook the lobster clasp onto said ring and close.
  9. Hook three rings together and attach one end to the other bead tip on the other side of the bracelet (this will help adjust how tight/loose you want to wear your bracelet).

And there you have it – it’s so easy, not at all time-consuming and yet produces a gorgeous piece of arm candy. What’s not to love?

Happy DIYing!
