You might remember the hex nut bracelet I made a couple of weeks back. I've been having a play, and I think I've got them coming out how I envisioned them now. They are similar to the ones on Honestly...wtf, but since I started them and finished them differently to theirs I decided to write up a tutorial for the whole process.
You will need:-
a bag of hex nuts from your local builder's merchants/ DIY store. These are apparently M4 hex nuts, basically I just bought the smallest they had. They cost me the princely sum of 3p each. You'll need between 3 and 4 dozen depending on the size of your wrist and how tight you braid them.
Ignore the washers, they are for a different project.
A clasp of your choice, split rings to attach it with, and a pair of the toothed jaw type ribbon clamp ends.
Plait the pieces together for about 1/2 inch.
Ta da! Your lovely bracelet. They are so chunky and satisfyingly heavy to wear.
And here is a gallery of different styles
The pale pink one is done with waxed cotton cord which, as you can see, allows you to fit the nuts much closer together creating a denser bracelet.
The white one is threaded in a completely different way, I'll explain that one another time.
