While shopping a few weeks ago I picked up a pack of embroidery threads (R50 for 45 skeins, can you say bargain?). Have a look at these beautiful colours (I finally stopped being lazy and got my camera out, instead of using my phone 😉
Since I’m not a big embroiderer, I decided to make some bracelets. They have thin silver beads that can be moved around, so they are either spread around the thread, or next to eachother in a strip. The bracelets can be worn wrapped around the wrist three times, or as a necklace. Nifty, right?
Update: I’ve now done a more detailed post with step-by-step instructions on how to make these. You can see the post here.
