The hard working aisles of plumbing materials and lumber at The Home Depot may seem worlds away from the the dainty filigree and shiny surfaces of a jewelry store, but we have a DIY jewelry idea that turns a common piece of hardware into something beautiful to wear.

The very crafty Grace Atwood masterfully combines girly aesthetic with the down-to-business hardware supplies. We posted a few weeks ago about Grace’s DIY jewelry project, using valve handles to make a statement necklace. She’s back with a DIY bracelet made from shiny, new brass hinges! Check out the full step-by-step on her blog, Stripes + Sequins.

DIY jewelry: a bracelet from brass hinges

In total, the project cost Grace $10 and 10 minutes! A pretty awesome investment for a beautiful bracelet!

Thanks for letting us share, Grace!
