I made this recently for the November Ongoing Pinterest swap.  I saw a bracelet similar to this on one of the swappers boards and really wanted to make my own version.  The one I saw was a tie on bracelet, and I adjusted it to make one with a clasp that jump rings could be added to to make it adjustable, and added some jump rings to the bracelet as a design feature and also for a more practical purpose, to help how the bracelet will lie on the wrist.



I also highlighted some of the paper components with inked edges to make them stand out more and add some depth, before embedding in resin.



I posted some more information about it on my blog.

I quite like how it turned out.  I may recreate something similar to this for my nieces at some point, when I get around to getting more small bezels like this one. 

What do you think?

I'm so in love with this bracelet!  The extra jump rings really give it a polished look.  I love little details like that.  <3

That's really lovely - it sort of manages to be rock and steampunk at the same time! I also like the extra jump rings, I think the thonging would be too stark without them.
