DIY Style: Braided Hex Nut Bracelet

This post isn't a full-on tutorial, but pictures of a fun bracelet I made from gold hex nuts (found at Home Depot) and teal suede lacing (found at Hobby Lobby), plus a few findings.

The original DIY is {here}. This explains how to braid the hex nuts. I decided to make my bracelet closer to the original inspiration, found {here}.  Regardless of how you do it, it's a super easy and simple way to make jewelry on the cheap!  I spent less than $7.  You could do it cheaper if you already have some rope at home.

Thanks ladies!

Sara - the jewelry I sell on etsy.....those materials I purchase online from jewelry supply retailers and I imported the gemstones. I go to Hobby Lobby or Joann when I need something cheap. ;-)
