Buy Or DIY | Disco Bracelet
Another round of my favourite feature! The real thing? It’s going to knock you back around $105. And the DIY version? I would say about $20 for the materials, and you should be able to make a couple for that. I love the ombre thread used on the DIY version and the fact I can add whatever little charms I want. The weaving looks slightly complicated - but I think I can do it!

Neon/Neutral Triple Cluster Pearl Bracelet | Caught On A Whim
I’ve always been a bit hesitant when it comes to wire wrapping because it has always seemed hard. But then I discovered that I was using the wrong type of wire! Using the right tools always makes life easier! I’m on the neon side of this choice, though the pearl one is still pretty gorgeous. Maybe I need to make both so that I have a choice!

Braided Bead Bracelet | Simply Allis
I’ve been seeing gorgeous braided bead necklaces such as this bracelet in the stores for about $40 a pop and though I love the style I can’t justify that much on a necklace that I will probably catch on something and rip within a minute, so making one is a great idea! I actually really like the combo of the red and gold too, great to wear with your Holiday party clothes!

Spike Bracelet | Stripes & Sequins
As someone who trawls the internet daily for DIYs, you start to see trends before they hit the stores - bloggers get inspiration from the runway, and once I’ve seen it on the blogs, it usually turns up in the chain stores. Spikes and chunky chains are a great example of this - I am now seeing big thick chains, rose gold and cord in all the stores. This spike bracelet is a great mix of a couple of trends right now and I’m loving it! Check out etsy for your big spikes - you could find big chunky chain at your hardware store but it’s going to be a lot heavier - try looking for the plastic chain that’s silver plated.

Gold Tube Bracelet | Honestly WTF
If you’re wanting to start making your own jewelry, this is a really simple project to start out on. I love the combination of the gold noodles and coloured cord - I actually bought a very expensive version of this and I’m kind of bummed that now I see this! This does include doing some macrame but it’s so fun and once you get the hang of it it’s lots of fun!
