One thing that having a newborn has done is made me focus on smaller projects that I have been putting off for a long time. I have all these ideas in my head but don't always get to them.
This is one project I can cross off that list.
A friend of mine gave me a few small decorative tiles a long time ago- knowing that I like things like that. I hadn't done much with them until now. My favorite one is a Fleur De Lis one (I love Fleur De Lis- they remind me of home in Louisiana!). I thought it would be cool to make a piece of jewelry out of it.
To make the tile a little more decorative I decided to add some glass beads around the edges to finish it off. I used Gorilla Super Glue and some glass beads I bought at the craft store.
Then just glued them all around the edge of the tile.
To make the leather wrap I simply cut out a piece of leather to the size and shape I needed. Once the beading around the tile was done and dry I needed to adhere the tile to my leather bracelet. I used snaps and Gorilla Glue Epoxy for this task.
I used the Epoxy to glue one part of the snap onto the tile.
Then connected the snap into the leather band.
After snapping my tile onto the band I treaded a piece of suede ribbon through the leather to use to tie the wrap down.
Then it was done!
I used the suede ribbon to tie the bracelet off.
