work in progress, cotton fiber bracelet 546



Here's the finished bracelet with the colored loops interwoven with the substrate core. Size is 7 3/8" inside circumference and there is a bit of flexibility so someone with larger paws could squeeze it on.

available now on Zibbet

Process photo: New direction in bracelet design using a single strand 9 x 22 base stuffed with loops of colored cotton cord.








Nylon thread holds the loops in place. Ends are knotted and left untrimmed. Frayed ends of the cord loops are further loosened to build up texture.









Here's a close up of one of the loop sets worked through the weave of the turks head.


The "hair" is ends of the nylon floss.
