Happy Labor Day! Anyone hittin' up some of the big sales today?! Hope you've been enjoying your holiday weekend :)
Last week while watching some TV, and folding laundry (of course), I saw these bracelets by Henri Lou, a jewlery high-end jewlery designer. When I saw these I thought "I could totally make that!"- don't you just love those moments? Well, I headed to my local Goodwill and found this U.G.L.Y. belt (for a whopping .99 cents) that I knew would be perfect for my bracelet. I even found a purse that I thought would work for the straps, but it didn't look that great when I made it...anyways... enter Exhibit A:
Then I cut out all the rings and got rid of the rope-ish, ribbon, belt part :)
After a little hot glue and satin ribbon, here is my Henri Lou inspired bracelet:
Henri Lou version- $80
Brittney's version- $3 (and that makes 4!)

Not too shabby :)
