Some of the horizontal images from my collage sheets don't make a good necklace; so instead, I decided to group them together onto a bracelet. I really like how it turned out.



Since the bamboo tiles have two holes running through them, I was able to link them together with 22 gauge copper wire, allowing the bracelet movement. I linked each side of the tiles individually so the bracelet would not be stiff. I like that the bracelet can completely fold up in a jewelry box drawer.



I remade the clasp twice until I was happy with the design. I coiled the wire around the hook clasp to reinforce it. 



After I put the bracelet on, I ended up removing one of the bamboo tiles because it turned out slightly too big. I think that is my only compliant with the design, it requires exact sizing.

Thanks! I'm really happy with it and it's pretty comfortable for such a large bracelet. My husband said it reminds him of Wonder Woman's cuff.

That is amazing, I love the images you chose, and the wire wrapping. Now I need to do some research on bamboo tiles
