Punk Bracelets

I have been inspired by Jen Kao's jewelry and wanted to do something similar. The photo is courtesy os http://www.forwardforward.com/.

What you need is leather, chain, zipper and glue. From there you can add on if you want to. In addition to the basics, I used eyelets on the leather and threaded leather lacing through some of the chains.








I kinda like how mine turned out, It is not an everyday item but is a fun punky one that I will wear from time to time.

I love it! That's what I call a bracelet with attitude. Looks great.
I'm also digging your nail polish. What color/brand is it?

Fabulous and stylish! I'm glad to see this style is fashionable again!

I made some similar jewelry when I was in highschool; back then my mother used to work at a shoe factory and she'd bring home lots of leather scraps; plus she had a grommet setting tool that I could use to make my own punk inspired jewelry (now it's mine, she gave it to me last year)!

Too cool!! I want to run home and try this. These would be great gifts for friends, too.
