I wouldn't DIY these

These charming things are bangle bracelets. Made out of sliced teacups. The artist also makes heart pendants out of the handles. I know.

I was like, I wonder if I could do that? And it turns out, I'm super scared of the idea of cutting glass. Not that I want to spend $65 for one of these, and ship it from New Zealand. We'll see if one or the other option wins out. Scary cuts vs. expensive and far away, in a fight to the death.

In any case, I thought this was the most amazing crafty thing I'd seen in awhile.
Found via tea for joy, link here.


  1. Oh wow, those are beautiful! That's a cool way for lovely glassware to have a second life.

  2. find a teacup and I can cut a bangle for you with a dremel.

  3. No kidding, that is amazing! I would be afraid to cut those things too... but I guess if you started with cheapy things and were safe... what could be the worst thing?
