I love how these ribbon and chain bracelets look! I’m not sure how I came up with them. I was working on something else and then just looked through my materials and tried to figure out how to pair things. I saw the ribbon and remembered the chain and through trial and error came up with these bracelets.
My boyfriend, Travis, really liked them, too and said I could sell them. :)
I might take him up on that. They are pretty easy to recreate and I got the hang of making a better looking bow. My favorite has to be the white ribboned bracelet.
I used the black ribbon on my first try and although I really liked it, the bow didn’t quite turn out as well. I was having trouble figuring out how to close the bracelet. Originally, I wasn’t thinking of the bow, I was planning on using a clasp of some kind.
Another bracelet I made was inspired by Donatella from the Inspiration & Realisation DIY blog. She recreated a Missoni rope necklace. I followed her tutorial but decided to make mine a bracelet since I didn’t have enough rope to make it a four-string necklace. My rope came from either an old tote bag or an old shopping bag and I had been saving the it for years.
Here is my version:
As you can see, I added a button with what looks to me like a nautical design which I think works great with this bracelet. I love the blues in the bracelet and makes me think of the beach.
What do you think?
