cotton fiber bracelet item 164

Three views of a new design made with hand dyed cotton cords bound together and wrapped with colored cotton floss. The shape is irregular and is naturally derived from the wrapping of the 3 mm cords and the edge binding. The colors are bright contrasting and vibrant. The floss wrapping at intersections and folds finishes the ends and adds more color. The closure is a three strand crown knot and loop toggle. This sample is an adult "extra large" but the design is easily adapted to smaller wrists or ankles. Assembly and finishing is done around a mold to create the circular form but the finished piece is flexible and soft.
