Well, I have had a burst of creativity! This bracelet is a inspiration from Amedeo NYC's cameo bracelet (as seen in first photo) that retails for $750.00 and the Tom Binns design (as seen in the second photo).
I love vintage items, but I have never really been into a cameo. Personally, a cameo seemed old fashion rather than vintage. I love the modern feel that both of these designers have put on this cameo bracelet and I was determined to make one myself. These steps will allow you to create an awesome turquoise and cameo bracelet for under $15.00 and I must say, this is my favorite DIY up to this date.
|My version of a cameo bracelet.|
|One of the many materials you will need for this project is a cameo. Hobby Lobby has this great line called Metal Gallery. I like this line because I like the vintage feel. I got this cameo for $2.00.|
|Step 1: Apply the rhinestone rope around the cameo using the E-6000 craft glue.|
|Set the cameo of to the side to dry, while you work on the bracelet. This is a picture of the old necklace I used.|
|Step 3: Tie the three cords together in a knot and cut. Then put E-6000 glue on the back of the cameo and place over the knot on the beads. I placed the cameo here, so the bracelet has a continuous flow and the knot is never seen.|
|Step 4: Put the bracelet around something to let it dry.|
|I love the look of this! I would love to hear what your think.|
