Denim Bracelet

Got an old pair of jeans you were about to throw away?  Stop!!  You can reuse denim in so many ways and here is just one way to create an adorable denim bracelet.
To make this bracelet, you will need some heavy wire (at least 18 gauge) cut to the desired size, a few beads for accents on each end, jewelry round nose pliers and an old pair of jeans.

1.  Cut out the inseam of the blue jeans and clip the top seam to reveal the channel where you will insert the wire.

2.  Insert your wire allowing for 1 to 2 inches on each side for finishing beads and closure.

3.  Add the beads of your choice on each end.

4.  In make a small loop using your round nose jewelry pliers to close each end.

There you have it!  An adorable recycled Denim Bracelet!!

I had another idea for a denim bracelet and then made some adorable earrings too -so much fun! I LOVE denim!
