make the most awesome jeans known to mankind~
I saw these rad studded jeans on the Internet and really wanted a pair for myself. The problem? I don't have 40$ to spare :(
So I decided to try and make these jeans on my own.
I could'nt find those specific studs at any hobby store so I went and bought a simple studded bracelate at 3.5 NIS (less then a dollar) and took out the studs.

I know the quality of the pics is not the best, since they were taken with my phone, so I might change them later :)

    Step 1

    Take any old pair of jeans you don't use anymore and you don't mind cutting and torturing.
    I recommend dark-colored, high-waist jeans for this specific look but you can pick whatever strike your fancy or whatever you find in your closet.

    Insert the studs according to the marking and make sure you don't close them on the pockets. Also, make sure you close the teeth good so the stud won't fall and it won't rip your tights or scratch you.
