Casual Friday Bracelet

About this design:

I love pearls, but I'm not a dressy person, so I designed this bracelet with simplicity in mind. Using waxed linen thread, I knotted various types and colors onto the strands and finished it with a beautiful antique mother of pearl button.


purple blister pearls, deep iris freshwater pearls, various glass pearls, slate grey 2-strand waxed linen

    Love the subtle colors with the gray cord. A classy, yet casual way to wear pearls!
    May I ask if you needed to enlarge the pearl holes for the 2 ply waxed linen??

    Thanks everyone! Freshed Baked – I did have to enlarge some of them, but the waxed linen is really easy to manipulate through the holes in general. :)
