When I was in Paris last year for my master thesis testings I got to enjoy the city in the evenings. Like any good tourists we went to Ladurée. I brought back macaroons (obvi) and also the beautiful bag as a souvenir… but i mean… keeping pretty bags is very nice but kind of usseless. I still wanted to do something with it I couldn’t throw it out. So i took out the straps (it’s a start) and then came the idea to turn it into a bracelet. I still had this big cristal from a chandelier so i combined them and voila… a DIY Ladurée Bracelet.
- Your ladurée bag cord (or any other cord)
- 1 big cristal
- 1 Toggle
- 1 little piece of chain (2-3 cm)
- 2 cord terminators
- 2 rings
- 2 round head pins
- strong glue
Cut your Ladurée Cord to be about half the length of your wrist. Glue your your terminators to both ends.
While that’s drying, make a ring on each side of your crystal with your pins.
On one side of the cord attach the crystal with a ring. Attach the T from the toggle with the other ring.
On the other side of the cord attach 2 – 3 cm of chain at the end of which attach the ring from the toggle
And voila, your very own Ladurée Bracelet souvenir!
