ISLY bracelet

June 4th, 2012

I’m sure i’ve gone on and on about my love for Melissa before – but i think it’s worth talking about again :) She is one talented lady! Back in January when she went to ALT summit, she made these really really cute leather bracelets with her blog name on – “I still love you”.

I was rather enamored with them – so whilst we were chatting about work, i mentioned how cool i thought they were – and she sent me one! Isn’t she just the sweetest?? There was a lot of squeeling in my house – and honestly i wear it almost every second day.

There was just one problem – I am not very co-ordinated, and I was really really struggling with the leather cording used as the closure. For the life of me i couldnt’ get it on and off – i know, pathetic. So i thought i’d better change the closure a bit so i could wear it more often.

It was such a simple little project! I bought some chain and clasps from Michaels crafts, got out a pair of pliers and attached them to the holes that were already punched in the bracelet. Done!! I felt a little bit clever i must admit hehehe

What do you think?? I’m pretty thrilled with the little alteration. It’s made my favourite bracelet even easier to wear. Thanks Melissa for being such a sweetie and making such cool stuff!!!

ps. the other rad bracelet i’m wearing is by my talented friend – the amazing apparel and jewelery designer, Kristin Hassan.

    Your not only awesome at clothing alterations but jewelry alterations. The leather bracelet is a great way to promote a blog without being promotional. If I didn’t know the bracelet was connected to the blog, I still would wear it. It’s very chic. Thanks for introducing me to another designer/blogger :)

    Genius! I’ve been thinking of doing the same with mine, the leather string broke some time ago. I’m so glad you still like that bracelet!
