DIY Wood & Hex Nut Bracelet & a JORD Watch Giveaway

BY Jen

I was recently contacted by JORD Wood Watches about doing a collaboration and I jumped at the opportunity! I have been admiring these beautiful watches for awhile and I am now the proud owner of a beautiful Zebrawood & Turquoise one. I wanted to feature a fun project that was inspired by these unique watches and I came up with this DIY wood and hex nut bracelet. (Keep reading for a JORD Watch giveaway!)

DIY Wood & Hex Nut Bracelet | A Sip of Bliss

I was inspired by JORD’s unique blend of natural and industrial, with a touch of glam. You wouldn’t normally think of the hardware store as a place to shop for jewelry making supplies, but I love the color and geometric shape of hex nuts and thought they would be a perfect compliment to the wood beads on this bracelet.

DIY Wood & Hex Nut Bracelet  |  A Sip of Bliss

What you will need:

– Wood beads (I used these)
– Hex nuts that are a similar size to your beads
Stretch jewelry cord
– Super Glue

DIY Wood & Hex Nut Bracelet  |  A Sip of Bliss

Directions:

  1. Measure and cut a piece of the jewelry cord that is the size of your wrist, plus a couple extra inches.
  2. String beads and hex nuts onto the cord in whatever pattern you like. I chose 3 wood beads, followed by one hex nut. Repeat until you reach the desired length (test on your wrist to make sure it fits).
  3. Once you have reached your desired length, tie a knot in the cord as close to the beads as possible and add a drop of super glue to secure. Allow glue to dry.
  4. Once glue is dry, cut off the extra cord ends.

    Love the contrast between the wood/metal and hex/circle, yet how simple it still is:) Thanks for the inspiration!

      I love the beads as well, which is why I wanted to keep it simple. They would be great just on their own but a little gold never hurts ;)
