Braided Batik Bracelet

This is a 6-strand braided batik bracelet. I am hoping to make these in leather next.

Jewelry making has always been an interest of mine. I have dabbled with beading in the past, but lately I have been playing with mixed metals. Here are some of the pieces I have made recently. Next on my list is braiding leather.

This month, it's a fashion experiment. Since, I stay home all day, every day, fashion is not a typical priority. But it's something I would like to work on. I don't have time to go all out, but pretty much anything is a step up from my green stained sweatpants, and over-sized t-shirt. So, over the next ten days, I will attempt to dress myself fashionably, in ten minutes or lessThere will be several staple items that will reappear in different ways. I will work with what I have, and it will be fun to see how creative I can be using many of the same items differently. I will post my progress here.

"Fashion Month" has been changed to "10 Days of Fashion" due to sloooooow internet connection resulting in slow photo uploading. It has also gotten tricky finding the time to have someone take my picture, tranfer it to the computer, and then of course, upload it, with three kids demanding my constant attention, and my eldest starting school this week. Ten days was a good span for this experiment and I am satisfied with the result. Join me soon for my next topic of amusement.
