All Wrapped Up

So many ideas, so little time. I have managed to come up on some great inspiration lately via conversations with my mother. She is the most amazing woman, and my biggest fan. I am experimenting with wrap-around bracelets. Leather + decorative chain + clasp = wrap-around bracelet. The leather strip is at any craft store, but sometimes it is hard to find the trim. Here is where you can 'Redud' by using any old chain from your past. First you take leather and measure it to wrap as many times as you'd like. Then you choose a great recycled ball-chain, decorative chain, or rhinestone chain. Use a color string, hemp, even another (smaller) leather band to wrap up the glitz with the grit.

Here are a couple finished bracelets.
