Recently, I've been making safety pin bracelets for friends because they're easy to make, look nice and don't cost a lot of money. Smiley I made a fourth on using silver pins and the same beads in the last bracelet, along with long metallic ones, but I don't have a photo, unfortunately.

Here's the tutorial: http://www.ehow.com/how_4443285_make-safety-pin-jewelry.html.

Love the first one and how it's monochromatic. Very cool indeed.

Never having made one of these, this may be a stupid question:
Could you buy a piece of black/white elastic used in maybe say,
a skirt waistband, and sew it to make a loop the right size to fit
the wrist, then open the safety pin & close it so it encloses the elastic?
I'm not a fan of the invisible elastic string stuff because I found that
it stretches out. Do you find that? Or maybe it is the kind I have. IDK

I really like this idea because you can choose beads that co-ordinate
with what you're wearing and arrange the beads to make a pattern.
Neat! Thanks for sharing

They are wonderful! Did it take a long time to finish them?

I am pretty sure that will work, so long and the elastic is not too tight on the wrist and there are a lot of safety pins so that the elastic isn't too visible. There are also fabric like elastic bands that and thin and would work well. They come in many different colours. I hope this helps Smiley

Heeheehee it's terrible how much this made my laugh. The bracelets are beautifully done, no doubt, but it just tickles me how the safety pins all look like they are huddling together to tell secrets or something. xD I adore this!

That's how I used to make them when I was a young girl, for just that reason.  Although, now, if you buy Elastomer, or Elasticity, they are jewelry grade elastics that do not stretch out.  That just shows you how old I am LOL.  I wouldn't use stretch magic or any of those that you can buy in the plain old craft stores.
