Wrapped Up in Something New

Wrapped Up in Something New

Every once in a while, you need to exercise your brain differently. I saw an article in Martha Stewart Living about making simple corded bracelets and decided to give it a whirl. My first attempt: stone blocks and Balinese silver strung on tea-dyed rawhide.

My second attempt didn’t go as seamlessly; it turns out I need to saw open one of the links so I can affix the clasp. I wonder if wire cutters would do?

Also: Beads can be expensive! The price of that silver piece was calculated using a dollars-per-gram ratio.
