Special Metallic Series: "California Luxe" Bracelet How-To

Posted by

Yesterday's special metallic post was chock-full of ideas, but one creative brainstorm was especially DIY and wearable. So without further ado, here's a step-by-step guide for constructing the gold flower bracelet created by JL DESIGNS.  And, if you're looking to spruce up your hair, this can also be converted into a headband.

Materials needed:

- 1 succulent floret

- metallic gold spray paint

- gold chain

- medium gauge floral wire

- gold bullion wire

Step 1: Remove any dried petals from the underside of the succulent, and clip the stem down to a nub.

Step 2: Flip the succulent upside down, and spray-paint the bottom and sides. Let dry.

Step 3: Turn succulent right side up, and spray-paint the top. Let dry.

Step 4: Poke floral wire sideways through the nub of the succulent.

Step 5: To attach the succulent to the chain, lace the floral wire through its links and twist wires together. (If you want to attach this to a headband, twist to wires around the pre-made headband.)

Step 6: Place the succulent on top of your wrist and wrap the chain around multiple times for a layered effect.

Step 7: To secure the chain's ends, use gold bullion wire to "link" them together.
