Thurs-DIY: Kenneth Jay Lane Bracelet

These days, every time I see a piece of jewelry I like, my first instinct is to see how I can make it myself. This bracelet from Kenneth Jay Lane was an instant inspiration, and I knew I could find an easy way to replicate it. The trickiest part is finding rhinestone beads to your liking, after that, the whole project takes less than an hour!


1. Strip of Aluminum or Copper (mine is from here but you can go to any craft/art store)

2. Strong Shears

3. Wire Cutters

4. 2-3 Yards gold ribbon

5. E6000 Glue

6. Ruler

7. Bottle, rolling pin, or anything else round

8. 2 rhinestone beads. Vintage would be fantastic, but these are from M&J

I’ve worn it every day since I made it. What do you think?

Pin It

  2. Amazing! Great idea to use a flexible metal underneath instead of a regular cuff– lets you get that great shape!
