Thrifty ♥ Thursday...Vintage hand-made charm bracelet.

So we are now onto our second thrifty thursday, i am so glad that lovelies liked the penny jar thrift, so much. I wanted to thank Gemma for including the thrift into her her Tuesday tips.
So as you lovelies know, i am a lover of beautiful things, my totally favorite thing is making jewellery out of thrifted things. So i have decided for the this thrifty thursday i would create a thrifted vintage bracelet.
So here we go lets get making my thrifty Vintage charm bracelet.

What you will need :
  • Gold or silver thrifted chain bracelet
  • Few little thrifted charms
  • Same amount of jump rings as little charms
  • pliers

Make sure the Bracelet fits around your wrist before you start making the charm bracelet. Collect up all your little charms & lay them around the bracelet, to get the arrangement Perfect.
Now take a jump ring, open it up with the pliers. This can be a little bit fidally, just take your time. put the jump ring through the top of the charm, then through the bracelet loop then close it. Now repeat it so that all the charms are securely attached.
It is a pretty simple thrift, and totally unique and no one will have one alike. Get thirfting.

Now for the exciting twist, i have decided that this Thrifty Thursday creation is up for grabs, in my Thrifty Thursday Giveaway.  Some of these charms are real gold, so get involved in the little giveaway.
Simply all you need to do is follow my blog, leave a little comment in the comment box with your email address so i can get in contact with the winner at the end. The closing date is next thursday 15th June. It is open to all reader international and uk.

  63. i only follow yours and GemFatale's blogs on here and must say I am so INSANELY jealous of both of yours' styles.. I literally look like every other Primark/H&M mannequin..
    We only have a few charity shops and none of them have anything that is vaguely inspiring.. I won a goorgeous french vintage shirt from ebay and think the bracelet would compliment it beautifully!!
