I like making my own jewelry because it’s fun and you can customize them.  For this DIY bracelets tutorial, I will be showing you simple ways to make 2 different types of bracelets.  I bought all of my materials from Michaels, a craft store here in Los Angeles.  I believe they are a chain store that are in most states.IMG 0929 580x516 Make Your Own BanglesFor this bangle with charm, you will need a bangle with an opening.  The one I used came in a 2 pack, by Bead Landing, for about $5.99.  You can use any charms you want, even beads with a large opening.IMG 0924 580x604 Make Your Own BanglesIMG 0925 580x622 Make Your Own BanglesInsert the charm or charms into the bangle.  Close the bangle. And that’s it!!IMG 0920 580x562 Make Your Own BanglesFor this bejeweled bangle, I found a bangle with flat circles for adding beads or crystals, by Bead Landing, about $3.99.  Make sure you use beads with flat backs.  With super glue or permanent adhesive, glue the beads to the bangles. I used red and turquoise because they are gorgeous colors, especially together.IMG 0906 580x604 Make Your Own BanglesIMG 0930 580x620 Make Your Own Bangles
