When a Bracelet is not a Bracelet

By on Thursday, February 23, 2012 1 Comments

Does a bracelet have to be a bracelet?  Nope.  Many jewelry pieces can indeed to be converted to other designs.  One of the easiest and perhaps most common tricks is to turn a bracelet into a necklace. 


That's exactly what Sherri did at one beading party.  She wanted to learn how to do wire crochet but preferred a necklace.  So all she had to do was to make a wire crochet bracelet (see tutorial link below) and then have two lengths of chains attached for the back of the necklace. The result was a pretty necklace just the way she wanted it!


Heading further north is LoveMaegan's DIY for converting a bracelet into a headband!  It's super easy and will give new life to old bracelets.  Little fashionistas you know will also love this idea.

  1. Very pretty. I love the combination of the crochet wire with the chain for the necklace.
