Setting the Bar


You've probably seen them all over the internet, in magazines and on television worn by celebrities...Well Punch Place Plus is setting the bar and making it easier for us to own DIY one (or a few) of our own!


You can now make your own bar necklaces and bracelets! (I KNOW!) You know the ones that have a single initial, coordinates, names, dates etc? (I struggled in purchasing one because I have a hard time committing to just one design-ya know what I mean?).


These bars make it so easy to express whatever you want whenever you want and they're so easy to make too!

I love that Punch Place Plus offers the bars in a wide variety of colors and don't limit you to just gold or silver.

To make your own bar necklace(s) or bracelet(s) you're going to need:
Rectangle Bars
Necklace Blanks
Bracelet Blanks
8mm beads (amount depends on size of wrist)
Stretch Beading Cord
Super Glue
Oval Jump Rings
3-4mm Spacer Beads (optional)
Needle Nose Pliers
Tassels (optional)
Vinyl
Craft Cutting Machine (optional)
Tassels or charms
And your imagination!

(Pictures of the other supplies can be found below)

To learn how to apply vinyl check out this post.

We are going to start out with the beaded stretch bracelet.


















 Now we are moving on to the necklace and bracelet with chain!

This first Necklace is going to have two bars on it.

 Start off with your amazing chain!
The amazing thing about Punch Place Plus necklace and bracelet blanks is that they include the split rings with them!! (AWESOME-SAUCE!!!) 
There are a total of three, two loose and one in the center of the chain.

You're going to start off by opening all of your split rings. 


Now you're going to apply your acrylic to the split rings and close them up.


 Split rings on both blanks.

 Next, you're going to add both of the bars onto the necklace split ring and close it.





You're going to do the exact same thing for the next necklace except you're using a double hole bar.



You're going to do the exact same thing for the bracelets too!


Now you'll be setting the bar with your creativity and making these for anyone and everyone! 
P.S. The Holiday's are right around the corner;) Put them in cute bags and you've got the perfect gift!
