WTFridays



Testing the waters...I have lots of Rocks and lots of Sari Ribbon.

Thoughts?

I like this very much, but it does look hard to put on with one hand. How does it clasp? Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

thanks for commenting, lori! i initially but a toggle on but that was awkward. my friend suggested i just have the wearer tuck the sari into itself and maybe put some beads on the ends. this past weekend, she and i did a 2 day festival and had out jewelry booth there. we each wore one for the whole weekend (setting up, taking down, etc). it stayed tucked and as tight/loose as we wanted it. so that is what i am doing. very simple to put on with one hand. the beads make finding the ends much easier when the wearer wants to take it off.

brilliant idea! I love bracelets and that was also my first thought ~ could I put it on easily. Sounds like you figured that out. This blending of the sari colors with the rock is very pleasing ... good job, Christine.

Wow Christine, I love the bracelet. The colors of the silk are very pretty. Did you drill the holes into the stone?

Hey... I know that stone! Looks great. I love the way you made the natural holes in the stones work for you. The contrast with the colorful ribbon really works well.

I like where you are going with this! The ribbon and the stone just compliment each other perfectly!

Oh I love that! The ribbon (soft) against the hard rock... and the charm is perfect! I'd wear for sure.

The colors on your bracelet are gorgeous! I love the color shot silks. Did you drill the rocks yourself? Great bracelet!
