I’ve been experimenting with different styles of wrap bracelets lately, trying to incorporate uncommon elements in my designs. Many have landed in the UUFO pile. (UGLY UN-FINISHED OBJECTS)
But – here is one of the more unique wrap bracelets I’ve made lately that I can show you. This floral trim has been in my collection for awhile (I don’t sew – but I love ribbon and trim). Spring has been on my mind so I went searching in my stash for springy elements to use in a bracelet and this trim jumped out at me amongst a sea of ribbons and other assorted fibers.
I’m not normally a flowery kind of girl and I don’t do much purple… But this wrap bracelet looks neat with jeans – which I do wear almost every day! So here it is: “Spring Garden Party”.
Nothing complicated. Floral fabric trim, chalcedony squares, 6/0 seed beads, petite sterling chain, 6mm jump rings, silver ribbon ends, large sterling lobster clasp, silver wire and lots of wire wrapped dangles.
Seriously – if anyone has tricks on how to take great pictures of bracelets while on your wrist – please let me know. I find it one of the more frustrating photos to take – which is why you never see me wearing my bracelets on this blog.
The light plays and shines on the petite silver chain and the dangles move in really neat way on this wrap.
Try using ribbons, fabric trim and other fibers in your bracelets. It’s an easy way to get a simple burst of color around your wrist!
Have a good week!
