DIY BALENCIAGA INSPIRED CROP TOP:
I have quite a few DIY projects building up and needing posting. Here’s a nice, quick and easy one.
What you’ll need: Leather thread, chain, rhinestone chain, 2 ribbon, crimps, 1 clasp, 3 jump rings, 1 charm (key) and pliers.
What you’ll need to do:
- Cut 2 strands of leather thread, 1 strand of chain and 1 strand of rhinestone chain equal length. I cut them about 25cm but this may differ depending on wrist size or the chunkiness of the leather and chains. Place the ends of the strands in a ribbon crimp and press closed with pliers.
- With chain and rhinestone as one strand, braid a basic 3 strand braid. Trim ends when you have reached your desired length. Then press closed with ribbon crimp and pliers.
- Attach clasp ends with jump rings. Add some left over chain to the eye of the clasp for a little extra detail. Attach the charm in the middle of the bracelet with a jump ring by threading it through the chain. Tah dah!!
Hope you like it! XX
