By now we’re all familiar with the Chan Luu wrap bracelet, right? They are amazing, but the price is steep. (I guess this pic is of the men’s collection, but I love the one on the left.)
It always seemed perfect for a DIY, but I wasn’t ever that driven to try it until I rediscovered this neon rubber cord in my supplies. For weeks I would play around the with the cord, trying to knot it into patterns, weave it into chain or make it into a cute tassel but it would not cooperate. Finally I resigned myself to attempting a Chan Luu inspired design using silver beads and clear stretchy jewelry cord.
Be sure to use a bit of adhesive to secure the ends of that evil, slippery stretchy jewelry cord. I used an S clasp and added a Swarovski crystal and stamped metal charm with my initials for fun. I think it’s a fun take on the wrap bracelet that’s perfect for summer.
