I made this one by using charms and beads off of a pair of earrings. They were over flooded with charms and whatnots, and way too heavy. I only left one a peace sign and took the rest off and turned it into this:

I had a waxed cotton thread-like band thing and braided it, measured around my wrist, closed off one end and stringed on those beads. (I'm not sure what you call them in English) then opened up rings and put on the charms.
Close up:

I always put one through both braided threads and the one through just one. So they wouldn't move around too crazily. It looks super shiny, but it isn't. The flash brought out all of the waxyness. Shocked

I made the next ones out of a headband I got at H&M. My head seems to be way too huge to be able to hold those bands, they're too tight and slip off =/
So I cut one side of the elastic off, and cut a piece (Minus the elastic) a bit smaller than my wrist and cut the elastic smaller.

Added a bead and a charm and sewed (not very well - my machine kind of ate it) down the ends with the elastic

They're like hair scrunchies, you can just pull them over your wrist and they're loose but tight enough not to slip off. Yeah, I know I should have covered the ends like they originally were, but I seem to always rush everything and want it finished pronto so I can wear it right away Roll Eyes but I'll probably get around to fixing them up
(I'm told I'm really terrible at explaining things. Hope you all understood what I was trying to say xD)
