How to make a lace bracelet

Dainty little bracelets can be a beautiful way to add some sparkle to an outfit, but sometimes you need a bolder look. That's where this lace bracelet comes in. This wide piece of jewellery gives a cuff or bangle type of look without the weight and it customized to the exact size needed so you don't have to worry about it slipping off your wrist.
Not a fan of pink? Although the pink velvet ribbon pairs well with the lace for a soft and romantic look, you can add faux leather strapping or cord for a more rustic accessory.
