I used C-Lon thread to stitch this bracelet on my wrist almost 3 years ago...June 17, 2016. I hoped it would last a week-long vacation in Maine. I am in awe of what all this bracelet has been through and all it has endured.
Water alone seemed enough to do it in ~ salt water, lake water, chlorinated water, shower water, dish water, and anyone who knows me even a tiny bit knows how I obsessively wash my hands.
What really surprised me was that I knew the moment it left my wrist. I always thought that it would come off suddenly in a lake or during another dorm move and I would notice hours later and never see it again. But it was gradual over the past week. I could see the end nearing. And the end was right here at home...where it began.
