    These are great! How did you get all the beads all “jumbled” (for lack of a better word)? LOVE the look and would love to make one myself, but not sure I even know how to begin it to keep it in place. :p

    beautiful Lorrie are you wearing all three? I really need to try and make one they are so lovely!!!!

    I sold four of these on Thurs, but the one pictured on my wrist I am keeping.

    Cheryl, What I did: four to six strands copper 20 gauge cut same length. wrapped in the center, then made the bundle by stringing onto 24 gauge copper, weaving around and twisting the wire as i went. Then I attached to the center using the rest of the wire, and secured by wrapping & weaving. Last I twisted up any sharp edges, and formed the cuff.
    Thank you Cheryl & Deb! :D
