Summer is almost over - but i don't want to let it go! Maybe that is why I keep making these bright and sunny Flower bracelets! They are stretchy - I don't really like bracelet's closures, they are so uncomfortable! Much easier just to slip the bracelet on. For this piece of jewelry I used silk thread and matching elastic thread for base (and some painted wooden beads). There are just two types of knots - the Square knot and the Frivolite knot. Working on detailed tutorial now!
Here is my new obsession - Macrame hair elastic ties, which also can be used as stretch bracelets. I saw them once on Internet and loved the idea! You only need elastic thread and beads, and they are so easy to make. Me and my daughter love wearing them both in hair and on hand! Detailed instructions coming soon..
