DIY Wire Bracelet/Arm Cuff

I've started learning Spanish this week and as you can see my skills are awe-inspiring. 
The summer months are approaching which means FESTIVALS, SUN and FRIENDS. I can feel the rays already! My search has thus begun for my preferred festival. It's currently between Wireless, Reading and Wildlife. As well as planning music outings I often conduct a wardrobe audit. I'll usually come up with themes for my seasonal dress sense. This summer is Boho hippy meets Parisian chic. (Is this weird? Please tell me I'm not the only one!)

To accompany the desired look this season, I've made this bracelet/arm cuff.  

This DIY is extremely quick. 
It's a cheap way to personalise your look. You can complete it with a heart, star, name or anything you want. It's so simple to make. Plus no one else will be wearing it! Result! The masses of girls at festivals wearing the same outfit is ridiculous. Us crafty types have a duty to show the world that originality is the route to true happiness. But I don't need to tell you that. You crafty thing you! 

What you'll need 
Jewellery wire
3-in-1 pliers

How to
1. Draw out a pattern/writing on a piece of paper to help. 
2. Bend wire into desired shape. 
You're done!

Are you going to any festivals this year? I've started planning my outfit options already (I need help).

Oh, I nearly forgot!

It's over there in the side bar. Yup, right there!


  1. This looks great. Would look fab mid bicep with a shirt with no sleeves?? Im loving the idea. And with you with not wanting to look like everyone else :-)

    1. I will be wearing it all summer. Thanks for the kind words!

  2. That is super impressive, I love the design and the rose gold colour.
