Honestly WTF's 'DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet' plays up on Grecian jewelry design. The gold bolts strewn together in the post are reminiscent of laurel and myrtle-clad wreaths, worn notoriously on the heads of the ancient Greeks.

The DIY Braided Hex Nut Bracelet was inspired by designer Philip Crangi's 'Giles & Brother Hex Collection.' The Crangi pieces made use of small gilded nuts, inspiring Honestly WTF to take on a similar production method.

Butcher's twine and brass hex nuts provide the foundation for these bands. The pegs are tied on to the three hanging strings in a braided formation, giving way to an elegant yet rustic look. Colorful studs or gems can be substituted in, though one would probably have the most success with deadbolts taken from a tool shed.
