These bracelets are so much fun to make! I spent two quiet evenings making this one while watching the latest season of Downton Abbey. Ahhh... the recipe for making a girl happy.
A Pinterest photo led me to the Ruby Mines photo tutorial for making Chan Luu Wrap bracelets. I chose this gorgeous filigree button from As Cute As A Button for the clasp. And I wrapped Amazonite beads and green satin Czech druk beads around brown leather cord.
For the first wrap bracelet I made, I tied my beads around Irish Waxed Linen Thread - and I now prefer to use the leather cord. The Linen Thread knots more easily than leather cord, but it is not as firm and has lumpy profile. The leather is nice and sturdy.
This project was a great Pinterest find. If you're thinking about making one of these wrap bracelets for yourself - go for it. It's easy and gives instant gratification.
