Yvonne Koné

Photobucket

who would have thought plumbing hardware could be so chic? inspired by Yvonne Koné, these gold hardware bracelets are fun to wear and even more fun to make. after figuring out some technicalities with my very temperamental sewing machine (we definitely have a love hate relationship) it only took me about 30 minutes to complete this. try it! i dare ya.


you'll need:

1. sewing machine

2. plumbing hardware courtesy of your local home depot.

3. leather material cut into thin strips
