After seeing a bracelet on a blog (sorry, can't remember which one!), I bought a $1.99 bracelet at Michael's the other day and decided to use only Stampin' Up! build-a-brads and circle rhinestone brads to embellish it.
The only tool I used was the pliers from the Crafter's Tool Kit. I cut part of the legs off and used the pliers to curl the ends under slightly and around the bracelet links.
