Scrappy Denim Bracelets

I thought I would make something quick to join the Its a Cinch Linky Party.  This idea has been floating around in my brain for a bit.   I thought the seem of old jeans might make a good base for some fun casual bracelets.

A little bling and romance made with scraps from worn out jeans.  What do you think?

They were pretty quick and easy to make.  I cut the seams from an old pair of jeans.  Then I sewed a strand of rhinestone beads to on strip of the jeans seam.  The other bracelet is made by wrapping a  length of lace around the other piece of seam and sewing it on.  Then I cut out various sized of circles of denim, lace, and muslim to make the flower embellishments.  These flowers were sewn on with seed beads.  A bit of hand stitching, a bit of cutting, and viola!  Fun weekend jewelry.  I sewed some jewelry findings on the end.  The clasp is a lobster clasp and ring.

Who doesn't want some jewelry that you can wear to the lake, junk shopping, or just bumming around on the weekend and no worries if something happens to it?

I think they turned out pretty sweet.  I suspect I will be wearing these on horse show weekends!  Now the questions is.... Etsy worthy?
