Vintage Inspired Black & Gold Bracelet Tutorial

In case you missed it.. 
I guest posted over at VWB a couple
weeks ago. Here is the post! 

Hello all! 
Are you feeling fabulous?! 
I know I am!
Im so happy to be here guesting posting on VWB for fab friday!
Nichelle rocks, I adore her blog! I feel rad just being here!
Woot Woot!
Well I've got a FAB tutorial to share with you...
but FIRST 
let me introduce myself;
My name is Maria-Isabel.
Im 26, Married to a hottie, and we've got 3 beautiful children.
My hobbies include all things artsy and crafty..
pretty much anything you can think of in that category.. I do it and LOVE it!
So when I get a spare moment from all my mommy duties
I love to share lots of tutorials and creative things on my blog
Agape Love Designs & Photography
Just to name a few things you can enjoy on my bloggity bloo blog...
My Photography
My paintings,
My digital design,
I adore creating my own hair accessories,
Which I also sell in my Esty Shop Agape Love Boutique

the list goes on..
I like to call myself a nomadic hobby person..
cause I never stay in one place..
Im always moving on to the next project and crafty thing I can try!
Then go back and forth between the new and old!
I just love learning and trying new things!
Lately Ive been letting my creative juices flow into jewelry making!

Which brings me to the fabulous tutorial I have to share with you today for this gorgeous
vintage inspired black and gold bracelet! :)

Gold & black tulle chain trim
Black Silk Ribbon
Jewelry Clasps
Sewing Kit
Vintage Buttons
Hot Glue Gun/Glue Sticks
Scissors/Multi tool

First you want to cut your trim to your desired length. 
Use your multi tool to either cut the chain link.

Youre going to need to sew the ends, so they stay together.

Use jump rings to attach any clasps of your choosing.
I am using the toggle clasp.
You now have the main part of your bracelet made.

Next cut yourself a felt circle to the size of your liking.

You will want to create a small slit in the center,
this is where you will add your button center.

Start gluing your satin ribbon around and around...

We are going to make a pretty flower.

Keep going until you've reached the center.

Add a little hot glue around the slit in the center
and stick your button over the glue and through the slit.
Hold firmly to keep secure.

Then sew to your bracelet!
I also like to add just a touch of hot glue after I am done sewing,
to add a little more security!

And there you have it! 
Youre gorgeous new Vintage inspired bracelet!

I also made one with a bow accent instead of the "flower" accent.
I love them both, cant really decide which is my favorite!

Of course, I had to have a little photo shoot with myself wearing my new bracelets! :)
Its perfect with the new black and gold sequin top I recently bought!

What do YOU think???

I LOVE it..
and I get several compliments every time I wear it!
