Hex Nut Bracelets

I hosted a little crafting get together at my place today and we attempted this project. I love projects that use things you can find around the house or the hardware store! All you need is twine and small hex nuts. I would have loved to use gold, but could only find silver.

I love how mine turned out! Kind of a Skeletor angle, but you get the idea:

Special bonus "craft" - I tried out a new cocktail, the Diamond Fizz!  

2 oz gin
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 tsp sugar
chilled champagne

1. Pour the gin, lemon juice and sugar into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.
2. Shake, shake, shake!
3. Strain into a highball glass (with ice optional and also I used wine glasses?)
4. top with champagne
