Today I’m doing a blog swap with Amy from Green Eggs and Hamm!
You can find me over at Green Eggs and Hamm posting about an old men’s tie turned statement necklace!
I have a feeling you’ll fall in love with Amy. She is A-MA-ZING. She blogs about her insane thrifting finds like this Burberry trench, recipies, incredible repurposing like this thrifted dress turned carry-all, and her adorable kiddos who I love so much!
First of all, let me say that Shelley is fabulous, and put simply, a designer ninja…a blackbelt…designer ninja. I have had the blessing of being in her home (we’re cousins, she has no choice) and this blog of hers is only a tidbit of her fabulousness. Enough of me rambling about Shelley…did I mention she has great hair too? Marsha, Marsha, Marsha!
Today we are doing a tutorial I found over at Honestly WTF. It’s a braided Hex Nut bracelet. The best part: it cost around $2, and takes less than 10 minutes, plus all supplies can be found at a hardware store, or in your hubby’s toolbox.
- Start with the strand on the left and holding the braid taught add a nut and push it to the base of braid. You’ll want to hold that nut firmly in place.
- Then crossover that strand.
- Before joining the right side, add another nut, hold firmly then crossover.
Follow this with the remaining hex nuts, then finish with another inch or 2 of braid, tie another knot and you are finished. You can leave a long strand and tie it with a knot, or do what I did and find a nice clasp. I hate wearing jewelry at home. It’s the first thing I take off when I enter the door…right before I put on my sweats.
Hope you all come by and say hello. Much love! Amy
