PROJECT B2233
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This personalized bracelet is guaranteed to get you festival ready to rock on and sing your heart out at your next music concert.
Instructions
These instructions will give you a wrap bracelet that is 6.5 inches. To adjust the length, modify the length of the leather cord and chain accordingly.
  1. Please watch our video: How to Use the Vintaj BIGkick with Etching and Embossing Dies.
  2. From what you learned in the video, place the guitar pick stamping into the die. Choose the section of the die that you would like to emboss on the guitar pick. I used a section just above center of the die (see photo for reference).
  3. Run it through the machine. Remove the stamping from the die.
  4. Use the Vintaj Relief Block on both sides of the stamping to bring out the shiny brass.
  5. To make the letters you will repeat the above process. I have used three blanks, but you can use all six or purchase additional blanks for you words or name.
  6. Next, using a paint brush dab on Vintaj Patina to the front of the guitar pick stamping. Quickly wipe off any excess with a paper towel. You may add more or less patina to achieve your desired effect. Repeat on the other side of the stamping. I used cobalt on half and verdigris on the other half to give it an aged look. I repeated this on both sides (see photo for reference).
  7. Take one headpin and string on one gemstone bead, make a simple wire loop. Repeat this step for three more gemstones.
  8. Cut off 14 inches of leather cord and 16 inches of chain. Thread the leather through the chain skipping every other chain link. Allow the chain to twist and curve with the leather.
  9. Attach the foldover cord ends to each end of the leather cord.
  10. Open the large jump ring that comes with the clasp and attach it to one end of the clasp, one end of the chain and the foldover cord end attached to the leather. Close the jump ring. Repeat this on the other side without attaching the clasp.
  11. Lay the bracelet out in front of you and moving from the left hand side using the smaller jump rings, move 2 about inches and attach one gemstone simple wire loop to the chain.
  12. Move about 1 inch and attach the guitar pick. Move about 1/2 inch and attach another gemstone. Move about 3 inches and attach a gemstone. Move about 4 inches and attach the three blanks with the letters on. Attach them on every other link moving to the left (you may need to adjust this step if you have additional letters). Move about another 1/2 inch and add the final gemstone bead.
  13. Wrap it around your wrist and you're all done!
