DIY Bracelet With Bracelet Blanks
What is a bracelet blank?
A bracelet blank is a bracelet that has unfinished areas, blank spaces, or "blanks" that you can glue objects onto to create a finished bracelet. Bracelet blanks come in many different styles, from bangles to cuffs to link styles. They also come in different finishes, such as silver plated, brass, and vintage finishes.
In this DIY I will be explaining how to make a bracelet with the link style bracelet blank. Different styles of link bracelet blanks will have different sized discs, from small to large.
Where can I get bracelet blanks?
You can find bracelet blanks at just about all major online jewelry supply shops, on Etsy under the "supplies" category, and at most large craft stores. All of the ones shown in this article are available from Rings N Things.
This is very important. There are all types of glues and adhesives, but some are for specific materials. Rings & Things has a great guide to adhesives that you can read here. I really like E6000 glue. It's widely available, inexpensive, great for binding all types of different materials together, and it's super strong.
Here are a few ideas of objects you can adhere to bracelet blanks:
Beach glass or small pieces of stained glass (remove sharp edges first!)
Vintage typewriter keys
Vintage costume jewelry (think orphaned earrings, broken pieces)
Natural materials such as lightweight stones or small wooden branch slices
Charms and findings: vintage brass finish is STILL popular!
Scrabble tiles or game pieces
Things made from polymer clay
Laminated paper - think photos, mini works of art, etc.
