Rubber O Ring Bracelets with Charms

How to turn rubber O rings into bracelets

Rubber O-Ring bracelets

South Africans love wearing black rubber O-Rings as bracelets. I was given a few by a girl in my yoga class that I wear from time to time. Recently I saw some on sale at River Island with cute little charms. I bought them straight away and promptly added charms to my rubber O-Ring bracelets. 

Well not exactly charms. One is a key I found on the street and the other is a Catholic medal I’ve had for yonks. The medals are easy to find in Catholic bookshops. I like that they have saints with special powers associated with them. See them here.

O-Rings are also easy enough to come by. You can usually buy them from a hardware shop or do an on-line search for your local supplier. See them here.

So all you do is attach your charms to your rubber O-Rings with some metal jump rings and you’re done!
