wrapped irregular fiber bangle - red and grey #101

What to do with all the leftover materials from making turks heads? There are always lengths of cord in different colors that are cut off after working the knots up to a finished shape.

The core of these are nylon cord worked into a grommet and then secured or wrapped with cotton cord left over from the other projects. The cord is unwound or unwrapped to make it workable and show the variegated color patterns created by the dye penetrating the cord during the dying process.

See the collections on the Etsy site. Individual pieces may be ordered or you can get an entire set of three. Lots of different color combinations as I'm using whatever is available in the workshop.
