DIY: Wrap Bracelet

I've become addicted to these wrap bracelets seen on numerous celebrities wrists the moment I saw them. The small gold/silver beads and silver button clasp add the right amount feminism while the leather that hold it all together give a bit of toughness. Unfortunately these Alex Luu badboys retail at about $220. :(

My solution? Making my own version of course! This was my an initial attempt, so I made a small one. Instead of leather I used embroidery string but it didn't last too long. My second time around, I used hemp. I will be experimenting more with the colors and stronger material once I get the chance. For now, I'm a happy camper. I'll post up more of my versions once I've made a wrap-around version.
