I had made this a little while back after my aunt gave me the center piece (silver thing with a turquoise stone in the middle). I had seen bracelets like this in stores, and I knew I could make something similar myself. so I did. and I wasn't real crazy about it. I had a piece of rubber tube looped through the center piece with beads between them like you see in those wrap bracelets, but it wouldn't lay down flat. but then, when I bought the silver beads I used to make my End of the Trail necklace, I knew they needed to be added to this bracelet. so I fixed it and now I love it.
