DIY: Wrap Bracelet

I fell in love with wrap bracelets the moment I saw them. Celebrities such as Vanessa Hudgens have been seen sporting a pair for herself. The tiny gold/silver beads and button closer offer hint of femininity while the leather bindings add the right amount of toughness. Unfortunately, these Chan Luu wrap bracelet retails at about $220. :(

My solution? Making my own of course! Since it was my initial attempt, I had used brown embroidery string—as I expected it ended up breaking. For my second try, I used hemp for durability. I will be experimenting with a few other colors and styles and will post pictures of them once I get the chance. As of now I’m a happy camper!
