oh well...wow. thanks all  Cheesy
The stiffness depends upon several factors. As pointed out, the base of the bracelets is a bangle (and the base of the necklace is a metal chocker), so all the bases are rigid. All the bracelets are made from cotton (only a thin or extra thin quality) and the crochetting is very tight (the index finger burns sometimes!), so the cotton come out thick. The spikes one and the balls one are quite thick themselves alone, while the "loop" ones are ironed after being finished. Ironing helps making things stiff. And the use of "amido" (how do you say that? is a thing you usually use for shirts collars and such), even if I don't use it often because I don't like them be too much rigid. As you can see they stand alone themselves, but it's cotton still, so when you touch it is sort of soft (ie you can "move" the loops on the chocker). Sorry I can't explain very well, english is not my language.

ciao!

amido = starch

I love them! They're so unusual and eye-catching.  I especially like the bracelet with the little balls on it.
