I liked making those, for the instant gratification factor.

First, another of my wrap bracelets. Quick and easy to make, despite the length. Distressed leather and turquoise is a classic colour scheme Smile

I've used a single thread for all the laddering, as it is rather difficult for me to disguise the added thread in this kind of bracelet.




This is my first memory bracelet ever, and a chance to use up some of the tiny coral and turquoise beads I happened to have. I am satisfied with the result - the bracelet looks beachy and neat. Making those loops at the end of the wire was a pain, though - memory wire tries it's best to hold it's shape as it is exactly what it does



At some time during my school years I was in a rainbow finish phase, and got myself a lot of different beads with rainbow finish. Now I am much less enthusiastic about them, and this bracelet was a good way to use up some



I happened to have some odd-shaped wood beads which I have forgotten about. As you can see, I am still in the "beacy" phase so the first thing that came to my mind was driftwood. I've used lava rock beads and a couple of green glass beads the colour of which reminded me of seaglass to enchance the beachcomber feel.



Still the "beachy" phase Smile
This bracelet is just waxed cord, overhand knots, some beads and glue-in cord ends.


I am somewhat worried that the lengths of the cord might not be even enough - I've seen some perfectly even ones in the net. On the other hand, this bracelet is supposed to have somewhat chaotic feel.

Great work! I really love all of the beachy themed designs, especially the one with the starfish on it!

I really enjoyed these bracelets, they have an easy-going vibe to them while still being interesting. You have a great knack for pairing up a bunch of different beads while still having a cohesive design look. Great job!
