In the past I think I've mentioned that I'm not really a girly girl. It's not that I don't want to look nice -- I'm more of the chill jeans and a cute t-shirt with flip flops and not a frilly dress, bows and flowers kind of girl. I own a lot of different jewelry, but I don't wear a lot of it because let's face it - jeans and flip flops don't really scream PUT ON A FANCY NECKLACE AND EARRINGS!! Well, maybe they do to you but my broke-down rainbows aren't screaming it to me. I own exactly two bracelets currently, both are from Target (don't judge). My mother-in-law recently asked me if I would want a pandora bracelet and I told her the truth, I would never wear it. I never wear the two bracelets I have. This all leads to a very surprising discovery - I have been pinning a lot of bracelets. Granted, I've mostly been pinning wrapped/beaded/boho/my inner-hippy kind of bracelets... but still bracelets.
After pinning the millionth bracelet, I decided it was time to actually try one. I looked at a few pins and decided on this one from Sweet Verbena. I had pinned it forever ago and then it went missing (don't you hate that?!) but luckily I found it again... whew.
I grabbed some hemp thread and some charms got to work. This is super fast my friends, super fast. I cut a length of the hemp 24" long and then pulled two strands out. I only did this because the holes in the charms I had were too small to pull all six of the strands through. Once they were separated, just fold the thread in half and cut it again. Now you have two pieces, take one and fold it in half and thread the loop side through the hole in the charm. Now pull the ends of the thread through the loop and pull tight. Repeat on the other side. I placed a bead on each end and knotted it to add a little something-something, but you do what you want. Mine turned out to be a little big due to my freakishly small wrists (why can't I say that about my hips instead?!) If you have freakishly small wrists too then you may want to cut the hemp a little bit smaller.
