scrap bracelets

these are so easy to make, and look best when worn in multiples: take a 1 inch-wide scrap strip of textile (a thin silk or cotton works best), twist it onto itself and run a zigzag stitch over it with the sewing machine. fold over one end into a loop and secure with a waxed jute twine. keep wrapping that same twine over the bracelet, and over a short length of bathroom chain (place twine between each ball of the chain). when you get to the other end, string a glass bead on twine and secure tightly. done!


  1. Love your bracelet! Could you please show a picture of how the bead is attached at the end?

  2. Good post. I definitely love this site. Keep writing! swarovski pendant
