A leather bracelet is the perfect accessory for summer. And adding rhinestones to it is an easy way to add some glamour! Make your bracelets using different colors of rhinestones and add some bling to your look. These bracelets were very quick and easy to make thanks to the Darice rhinestone heat setter.
- Leather Bracelets with Snap Closure & Pre Pierced Holes
- Hot Fix Glass Stones in colors of your choice
- Darjce Rhinestone Setter Heat Applicator Wand
The hot fix rhinestones have some sort of adhesive coating that is activated when they come into contact with the heat setter. Using the heat setter is easy. I just let it heat up for a few minutes and picked up each hot fix rhinestone with it. The heat setter fits perfectly over each rhinestone and comes with a variety of tips for using different sizes of stones. It also works for metal studs which is really cool.
Pick up the hot fix stone with the setter with the rhinestone facing up. After a few seconds, the black coating on the rhinestone will get a little bubbly. And then you place the setter applicator wand on your desired material and the rhinestone sticks to it. The adhesion seems to be really strong, as I’ve worn these bracelets a few times and haven’t had any rhinestones fall off.
This leather bracelet base conveniently has holes pre punched into it. I used them as a guide for where to stick the hot fix rhinestones.
Easy Peasy! Enjoy your new rhinestone studded leather bracelets!
