This bracelet is made for Christy Nelson's monthly challenge, where we get different supplies each month and have to do something crafty with it. The supplies we received this month was glitter paper, pill bottle, clay, raffia and favour cup to use. When I received the package I had no idea what to do with it, until I got the idea to make a necklace.

After gluing together the raffia I began to make a macram necklace, making a favour cup bow, glitter paper rose and clay beads with melted plastic bottle pieces attached to them. What I ended up with was OK, but I didn't like it, so I ripped it apart and began again. (If anyone want to see how my first attempt looks like you can see it on my blog)

For my second attempt I used some extra thread, since it was almost impossible to reuse all the raffia. I also had to make smaller beads, since the first ones was a bit too big for a bracelet. When I was done braiding the thread with the beads and added the rose and changed the paper bow to leafs, I sew on the lace and ribbon and then I was done. I really like it, and will probably try to make another one with different material later.
