1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / Anybody ever made a hinged bracelet from scratch? on: December 18, 2006 10:56:25 AM
Well...maybe not entirely from scratch.

I have purveyed a couple unfinished wood bangle bracelets and after much rumination, decided that this was the creative route for me.

But, so many questions...

Has anyone every cut one of these in half? What did you use? Was it wobbly? Did you have to brace it with something? Did you have to cut a little extra out on one side to accommodate the hinge?

What kind of hinge did you use? Did you attach a clasp to the other side or was the tension of the hinge enough to hold the bracelet in place? Did you stick to a most round profile on the bracelet, or opt for a more natural oval fit?

See...told ya, LOTS of questions. I'm interested in any & all comments & suggestions!

Miss Vanessa, those are AWESOME!!!

And thanks, zlana. My boss wants me to come up with 12 new craft class projects for 2007 with a $50 budget per class...so, I'm tossing around some ideas.

I have this great idea to make cuff bracelets and wrap around rings out of shrinky dink plastic...but is it doable?

I really suck at math...so I don't know if I kind find sheets big enough to account for the shrinkage.

Further more, what the heck could I use as a mold? Should I wrap it around something while I'm blasting it with the heat gun, or is there time to wrap it once it's shrunk?

I've never worked with the stuff before. Any advice from those more experienced with the medium would be awesome!

Here's a chance for all you Etsy users (and other crafters who sell your wares online) to promote your stores while giving to a good cause.

Nice to meet you guys. Grin

fdlkfgjregerg how much for the third oneee?!  holy COW. that fabric is great.. so colorful and florallyyyy.  you have awesome bags, definitely keep sellin' some an option! and I hope your kidney gets better!! wonderful job on all of the bags Smiley

That's my fave too!

I'm obviously a noob here...but honey, I feel your pain!! I'm down to one kidney from chronic stones but...all the surgeries do give one copious amounts of time in which to craft. Wink

You should totally sell those on Etsy. (Extra money always helps with all those dang medical bills!)

Take care. Smiley
