11. DIY Rope Bracelets
These styles of handmade jewelry tend to be thicker and bigger, so it’s best worn by itself instead of stacked with other bracelets. These cuffed styles are great as accent pieces, particularly for casual outfits that need a little pizazz.
12. DIY Leather Bracelet
Leather cuffs are edgy and cool — which is why they continue to stand the test of time. To make your own DIY leather bracelet, braid leather strands together to create a simple cuff.
You can also recreate a regular chain link by cutting leather and sewing it together. Lastly, add additional metal accents, such as beads, to update the look.
13. Stone Bracelet
Sometimes, the only inspiration you need will come from nature itself. For this DIY bracelet, take a precious stone as a centerpiece and attach it to a silver or gold chain to create a statement piece.
You can lengthen the chain to create a wrap bracelet or even a necklace.

15. Delicate DIY Friendship Bracelets
Whether worn by itself for a simple and understated look or stacked with chunkier metal styles and woven friendship bracelets, delicate bracelets are a covetable addition to any collection.
To make your own delicate bracelet, stack your choice of stones or beads through an eye pin. Secure each end with jump rings and attach a chain on each end.
16. Brass and Rope Bracelet
The supplies to use for this bracelet are available at your local hardware store. The rope is available in different colors, so you can create different designs depending on who you're giving it to.
