Waxed Linen Jewelry Blog Hop
About a month ago, Diana P. realized she was on a mega waxed linen kick and decided to host a blog hop. The requirement being participants make jewelry using waxed linen. I've never used waxed linen before. So I decided sure, why not. So I ordered some waxed linen. I couldn't decide what color to get. So I got all of them.
After getting all the colors, I was stuck. STUCK. So I started googling inspiration photos. Then I started googling tutorials and stumbled on this easy braided bracelet tutorial. There were three things I loved about this tutorial. #1-easy. #2-the ability to use an art bead or button as the clasp. #3-the design was aesthetically please and easy to wear. Ok. Maybe that is technically 4 reasons....
I decided to do a wrap bracelet. I selected a gorgeous dichroic fused button by Linda Roberts, some purple size 8 matte seed beads, and turquoise waxed linen thread and made this
I was going to do something from my own brain at this point, but this bracelet was kind of addictive and I have a LOT of art buttons/beads. I have a limited number of size 8 seeds, so I picked those first, then the disc by Lisa Peters Art to coordinate, then the thread.
I originally wanted to make a stack, but they don't look all that great together. Maybe if I had a couple more bracelets to tie the two together.
That's all I had time to make. These are super comfortable to wear and addictive to make.
Stop by and see what everyone else made with their waxed linen thread. I'm pretty sure they were more creative than me :-)
Have a fun, safe, and sunny Memorial Day weekend!
