Fun nautical fact:  Rope bracelets were originally made and used by sailors as good luck charms to protect them on the open seas.  We recommend setting sail while rocking the boat with style.  Add a pinch of punk to your rebellious side and shine with an inventive edge.  Pull spikey inspiration from an icon, aka Hermes stud bracelets and check out other spiked sensations from CC Skye and Rebecca Minkoff. Get roped in while creating your own nautical punk piece with this rockin’ DIY.

To Create:  Gather a few Nantucket rope bracelets.  These were (and still are) a summer staple at local beach gift shops everywhere. Gather a variety of spikes and simply unscrew, push the screw end into the bracelet, and twist the back on.  Make sure your spikes are screwed in tight.
