I made this bracelet a couple of weeks ago from a tutorial in a book called textile techniques for jewellery. The projects in the book are really good but what I most like about the book is that there are lots of featured artists/jewellers which is really inspiring. The project is meant to be done with felt but I didn't have a piece big enough so I used some wool blend fabric instead. It frays more but I think it looks cool. I'm not sure how much wear I'll get out of it but I enjoyed making it!
