Bracelets are one of those things that I can't seem to get enough of, and when it comes to stacking them, well, I'm going to go out on a limb and say that more is more. So short of stalking the jewelry aisles of Forever 21 on the regular, DIY is always a good option. With only a handful of materials and enough time to rewatch two episodes of The Mindy Project on Netflix, you can whip up this golden wire bracelet too — here's how!

SUPPLIES: GOLDEN WIRE | PLIERS | E-600 GLUE | FIMO CLAY | GOLD LEAF PEN
TIME: 1 HOUR | DIFFICULTY: MODERATE 

Start by molding two dime-sized balls from the FIMO clay. Once you've evened out the surface, press the wire gently into the clay, inserting it halfway through the ball. Using the package instructions, bake the clay balls in the oven for about half an hour until hardened.

While the clay balls cool fully, measure a piece of wire around your wrist and cut off the excess using a pair of pliers. Work out any kinks in the wire until your bangle looks good... it doesn't have to be perfect though, so don't stress (like I used to!). When that's done, glue the clay balls onto both ends of the wire bracelet and allow them to dry fully.

Now comes the fun part — gold leaf that sucker! I mentioned my new-found love for gold leaf pens in this post, but man are they incredible. If you haven't used one before, you gotta try one... The finish is unlike any other.
