Slide bracelets by Cousin - with a giveaway!


The folks at Cousin recently sent me a lovely selection of products from their new line of slide bracelets, now available in Jo-Ann stores. These bracelets are super easy to make - just slide a few mix and match accents on to finished leather strips, use some heavy-duty glue to attach the closure findings - done!

The variety of slider links and beads is huge and the leather bands come in several different colors. You can paint the bands a different color if you want.


I added some of their Crystazzi beads and a couple of their Trinkets charms to silver wire, then wrapped the strands around the center slider accent and let them drape on either side. The wire is coiled around the leather at each end. I like the contrast of the distressed denim-colored leather with the sparkly crystal.

When you're done here - click on the Designer Crafts Connection logo in the sidebar to hop through more blogs with fun slide bracelet ideas to share.

Congrats to Marelle and Carmen - they each won a bracelet! Thanks to everyone who visited and entered my giveaway.
