- Wedding: January 2013
A few weeks ago, I went through some drama with an etsy seller, which I ranted about in this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/my-first-etsy-burn
I decided to make my own bracelet, and here are the results! I think it came out absolutely perfect! I wanted the bracelet to match the detachable strap to my dress, and I can’t imagine it matching better.
I started with a bunch of loose gems I bought off of etsy. (I probably ended up spending more than the stupid bracelet cost through the crappy stupid seller.) I used a plain, unfinished brass cuff. First, I tried soldering the gems onto the bracelet. That was far beyond my expertise.
So I went to the craft store and found some glue made for gluing metal to metal. It’s still drying… so hopefully all the gems don’t fall off tomorrow.
Here is the strap to my dress:
And here is the bracelet I made!
