One of most exciting facets of being a creative designer is when companies send you complimentary products to create with! The Cousin Corporation (which is just up I-75 from me in Largo, Florida) is a family owned jewerly crafting and bead company that started out in 1970. Truly a success story.
Cousin has a new Slide Bracelet line that is available at Joann's. They are quick and easy to create and come in a variety of fashionable colors and themes. Check out the video and pick up some components today!
I received a blue and a red leather bracelet with burnished gold clasps and slides along with a cute owl and heart accent slides.
For the first slide bracelet, I "painted" the blue leather with Ranger Perfect Pearls, then embellished the owl slide with Turquoise Stickles by Ranger and more Perfect Pearls. Measure your wrist and cut the leather down to size with wire cutters. Use just a small dab of E6000 glue to secure your owl and accent slides in position, then secure the clasps. I also added square turquoise rhinestones that I had in my stash.
For the second slide bracelet, I stamped on the red bracelet with a script handwriting stamp, to look like love letters with Ranger Archival Ink. Then I inked in the center of the leather with the black ink to set off the heart slide. Measure your wrist and cut the leather down to size with wire cutters. Use just a small dab of E6000 glue to secure the heart and accent slides in position, then secure the clasps. I also added small black half pearls that I had in my stash.
