It dawned on me a couple days before the wedding that I didn’t have a bracelet to go with the dress I was planning to wear. So I did what any DIYer would do– I whipped up my own bracelet.
large lobster claw clasp: $3.99 ($3.19)
5 embroidery threads: $1.95 ($1.56)
1/2 yard large gold chain link (found in the lace by-the-yard section): $9.99 ($6)
The total cost of my bracelet was about $6. The half yard of gold chain allows you to make two bracelets so I’ll be making another one soon. I should also let you know that it took me about an hour to make the bracelet.
So I threw the dress back on yesterday to take this photo. My head is intentionally not in the photo because I was sans makeup and my hair was beyond frightening. You’re welcome.
I know the bracelet is super matchy-matchy, but I like it. I paired it with fuchsia and gold teardrop dangle earrings from Forever 21, which can somewhat be seen in the sequin-hat-wearing gangster/evil bunny rabbit photo above.
What do you think of the bracelet?

Do you have a quintessential photo booth pose?
In other news, I’m going to try to post 4 days a week from now on (Mon-Thur). I have all my posts lined up for this week. Pats on the back are welcome. Be sure to come back tomorrow! I’m sharing some thrifting finds.
I’ll be linking up at the following parties:
