When we were in Canada, I bought this bracelet. It was several straps of leather with various charms.
…And it broke before we got home.
So I finally got around to fixing it last Saturday.
I used twine instead of leather, so I can make changes more easily and so I can use fittings that will clamp, rather than gluing the ends like before.
Started off by taking the bracelet completely apart and sorting what goes on each strand.
I braided one strand, use a single strand, a double strand, and a triple that is twisted. Halfway there.
All of the strands plus the fittings.
I used crimp fittings to try to keep everything together. We will see whether this works better than glue. another view.
On my wrist.
Next up is a friendship bracelet kit that the Husband put together for kids at the Makerspace. It is a cardboard disc and some yarn. I hate the way yarn feels (yeah, I don’t know either, but there it is), so I used crochet twine. I am loving orange, green, and yellow together right now, so I picked those. You need seven, so I went with a solo cream thread. Which, as it turns out, helped me keep track of the threads.
Things I learned.
But for a brief shining moment, I had one.
When did my hands get so wrinkly?
