loop hinge knotted rope bracelet 3681

 This little rope bracelet is an experiment with something I call the "loop-hinge" knot.

Two outer loops hold the single pass of cord forming a flexible hinge. The loose ends are trapped in a binding with waxed nylon thread.

Non-adjustable size. Flexible hands required to slip on over the wide part of the hand.
Four circumferences of hand dyed green cord make a multi-wrap stacking statement.

7 3/4" (197 mm) circumference

If this were executed in a stiffer material the hinge would relieve the natural tension forming a curved shape with a point.
Available by special order only.

These and other unique bracelets can be found online WhatKnotShop on ETSY
