Pretty much over night Leandra Medine of The Man Repeller created a phrase-craze phenomenon. She is the one responsible for coining this years newest catch phrase soon to be added to Merriam Webster Dictionary: the ARM PARTY. If you haven't heard of the arm party yet you must not get online. Ever. I'm not sure she ever gave it a precise definition but basically it means wearing a ton of bracelets on one arm (or both if you are so inclined).
I have previously posted some photos worthy of arm party status HERE, HERE, and even a little watch arm party HERE. One thing that I love about a lot of these arm parties popping up is the mix of "high" & "low" jewelry. An Hermes enameled bangle with a Dannijo friendship bracelet or a Cartier Love bracelet with an Ettika braided wrap bracelet are not combinations that are surprising to see. Even better???? An arm party of DIY bracelet baubles. That's right. You can DIY to your heart's custom desire your own arm party just the way you like it.
Bracelet DIYs have been popping up EVERYWHERE. And I am here today to curate a little collection of may favorite arm party participant (aka bracelet) DIYs. Here you go! (click on the photos to get whisked away to the tutorial)
