Sweet Beachy Bracelet

About this design:

So lightweight & reminiscent of tiny shells I would find walking along the shore as a child. Easily strings up onto waxed linen. This could also be made as an anklet by adding an inch.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Figure out how long you want your bracelet to be, then subtract an inch for the loop/button closure.
Knot the button in place and string on the shells. Then finish by creating a loop at the end just big enough to fit the button through. I chose to embellish my cord at the end with a series of tight overhand knots before looping, this gave the loop a bit of texture.

    I love this! It reminds of a bracelet with small white shells that I received as a gift from my S.Korean exchange student’s mother. She made jewelry for me with tassels way before they became so popular.
    I digress…I never tire of shell creations! Cool!

    I like it. It’s clever to change the direction of the shells to fill the entire bracelet. I am going to make one!
