Ebay made me do it #2

As you can tell by the title, I may have gone a bit overboard recently whilst perusing the eBay website... oh well. I like to justify this by telling myself that these were too cheap not to pass up. I got two bracelets and something else I plan to use when I'm in a DIY sort of mood... more on that in a moment.

The first thing I got was this spiked bracelet, after seeing Victoria's eBay post. Seriously, who doesn't love her eBay posts? This girl has such an eye for lovely and affordable things, I have to practice some serious self-restraint every time she has a new post up. I have my eye on those ankle boots next... Anyway, on to the bracelet.

 
It is made from a mix of bronze, gold and silver coloured metal alloy. It doesn't feel very 'weighty' but I don't really mind, it was cheap and I think as a bracelet it's quite nice and spices up an otherwise plain outfit. Now, on to the real gem of all the things I got...
 

How pretty is this? I got this sideways cross bracelet here for a shamefully low price and best of all - free shipping! You can't really tell from the photos but it's a lovely rose gold colour. The cross is 'curved' so it sits nicely on your wrist and the chain is quite fine giving it an elegant look. They also stock these in black or silver. I would definitely recommend this if it's the sort of thing you like.

I also couldn't resist buying these...

 
I plan to do a bit of DIY studding with these but I'm not sure on what exactly. I have already tried studding the side of some Converse (my boyfriend was my guinea pig, I'm not sure how happy he is with them though as they now lie discarded in the corner...) and am keen to try them on some other items of clothing, maybe along the collar of a shirt. How well they will stay put, however, remains to be seen. If you have any tips for me or have experience with this I would love to hear from you! I purchased these studs here.

Happy Friday everyone!
