Make a Personalized Phrase Bracelet!

Have to make these! Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial) If I had to pick one piece of jewelry right now to be my “soulmate” jewelry, I think it would be these phrase bracelets. They are everything I’m looking for in a wearable companion. From the leather strap to the modern gold font and the slightly cheeky phrases, it’s the perfect combination to make me say, “Gimmie! I want!” in a very mature and dignified manner. Besides looking so darn cute, the other big plus about these bracelets is that they take just minutes to make, and you can personalize them with whatever phrase or hashtag you want! #yesplease!

Have to make these! Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial)Supplies:
-flat leather (10mm x 2mm) or oval leather (10mm x 6mm)
letter sliders
-magnetic clasp (10mm x 2mm or 10mm x 6mm)
jewelry glue

Have to make these! Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial) Cut one side of your leather into a point like the front of an arrow (this makes it easier to slide the letters onto it). Slide your phrase letters onto the leather strap.

Have to make these! Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial) Trim your arrow shaped end so you have a straight cut instead. Take one of your magnetic clasps, add a small drop of glue into the opening, and quickly place your leather end into the opening. If you have a light colored leather, be careful not to add too much glue, or it will overflow the opening and darken the leather it comes in contact with (you can see it did a little bit on mine). Place the leather around your wrist to determine the length of the bracelet (keeping in mind how much length attaching the other clasp will add or take away). Cut your leather to size and attach the other side of the clasp.

Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial) Now, some bracelets have beads or parts that are supposed to slide freely on the bracelet, but since you want your phrase to be legible, you probably want them to hang out together in a neat little row. Flip the bracelet over and, starting with the middle letter, place a drop of glue where that letter should go. Slide your letter over onto the glue and let it sit for a moment until the glue starts to set. Repeat the process with the other letters until they are all glued in place.

Easy phrase bracelets (click through for tutorial) I hope you guys are as into these bracelets as I am—I just adore them. I love the personalization aspect, all the different colors you can do, and they absolutely look like something that you bought rather than made. Yes!! And, on top of it all, they make a perfect gift, especially if you and your girlfriends (or sisters/family of course) have a particular phrase or hashtag that’s an inside joke. Those are the best. Most of mine are every other sentence from Arrested Development. Unfortunately, those are too long for a bracelet (although maybe we could do “Marry Me” or “Her?”). Either way, here’s the breakdown on this DIY: super easy, really cute, great gift idea. What’s not to like? xo. Laura

  • Hey Jessica! The company I work for sells that gold arrow/chevron bracelet. You can find it here: http://geraniumboutique.com/collections/bracelets-created-desc/products/jb4143gd

  • These are gorgeous! And so simple! Sadly, the website where you bought them, ask enormous shipping prices outside of the US. Hopefully I’ll find the supplies somewhere else because I can’t wait to make these!

    Love, Lily

  • I think I found it. The color of the leather says teal but the picture looks blue. Would that be the right one?

  • These are adorable. I’ve been on the lookout for great gifts and feel like I just hit the jackpot 🙂

  • Oh man. “Her?” and “Marry me!” Best. I love anyone who likes AD.

  • I’m thinking, “No Touching!”, but maybe even that is too long. 🙂 It’s tricky thinking of short little phrases… Great idea; it’s nice to have a few quick and easy projects like this on hand especially for parties or craft nights. It’s a craft you could easily share with a few friends if you bought a bunch of letters.

  • These are so cute! Makes me want to hold a bracelet making party now! They look store bought 🙂

  • Laura, you’re giving us so many great holiday present DIY ideas! While gold isn’t really my color, I can think of lots of girl friends who would go wild for this, especially if I included some of their trademark slang words.
