crazy cotton fiber bracelet 663

What to do with the cut-off bits of colored cord? As an inveterate hoarder it's impossible to throw these pieces out so they accumulate in a box until the moment when inspiration overtakes reason.

Here's an experimental piece that combines somewhat randomly chosen bits of hand dyed colored cords in a grommet style lash-up. As you can see the ends are intentionally left free to fray. The cords are sewn together with nylon thread to prevent total entropy.
