LB3I love this bracelet!!!  It is earthy and subdued, yet fierce with the mini studs and giant metal magnetic clasp.  To put it together is a snap!


1 x 60mm Flat Smooth Magnetic Clasp – Antique Silver

30″ (for a 7″ wrist) x 5mm Flat Studded Arizona Leather – Black

30″ (for a 7″ wrist) x 5mm Flat Studded Arizona Leather – Forest Green

30″ (for a 7″ wrist) x 5mm Flat Studded Arizona Leather – Saddle

Super New Glue

Leather Cutter

Measuring Tape

  • Measure your wrist.  There are a couple of things to think about here: 1) the clasp measures 22mm wide and 2) you may want the leather at the top of the cuff slightly longer as arms widen as they go up towards the shoulder.  Come up with the measurement that works for you.  I ended up ordering a half-inch per strip extra of each color so…

Another wonderful post by Bello Modo. Go check it out.

We recently got in a nice selection of Large Holed Semi-Precious Stones. They come on 8″ strands so its easier on the pocket book to purchase a few different shapes and making a bracelet like this is more fun with a few different shapes.


The large holes are perfect for 1.5mm leather cord, making it a snap to use a button for the closure. (TierraCast buttons are perfect for this purpose). LHB2

For contrast I used a few metal and glass beads, and a few spacers, just for fun.

You could easily add a few knots here and there, creating space and also you would need less beads. I just had so much fun adding all the different shapes and colors that I forgot to add any.

Honey Bee Drop Earrings

Bello Modo

Here’s another example of how using Crystal Clay can make it easy to construct a showy set of earrings.

Crystal Clay is a two-part resin epoxy clay, mix equal parts of each part together until the color is well mixed and then you have an hour or so to use it before it begins hardening. It hardens to a rock hard state within a couple of hours and anything embedded or sandwiched together with it will be connected forever.


The little bee cabochons are a perfect fit for the Nunn Design Ornate Bezel, sitting right on top of the edge. The Crystal Clay makes this kind of installation a breeze. Just fill the bezel with clay so that the bottom of the cab comes into solid contact with the clay. Press together and give it time to solidify.

Once the bezels are ready go ahead and add beads, drops, charms…

Bello Modo shares the new Nunn Design components they received and what a fabulous job they did creating beautiful jewelry.

Bello Modo

So many gorgeous new Nunn components arrived recently and I was inspired to try my hand at metal stamping again.  Although, they did not come out perfect and I had to scrap a couple pieces along the way, overall, I am very happy to have a necklace with all my sons (including the newest one who does not arrive until the end of October!!) names upon it, embedded within hearts.  If you are new to stamping, I suggest ordering an extra Tag or find a similar metal to stamp upon to practice spacing and technique.SNN1

Wearing this necklace feels so special, with the names of my children kept close to my heart.SNN2

I love any metal that has been hammered!  Here is the new Hammered Flat Tag Long Narrow Single Hole in Antique Silver.  I stamped the letters onto the pieces, spelling out the names of my 2 boys…
