Braiding is such an easy technique to use for jewelry making as shown by these creative individuals. Their tutorial approaches were all different but the resulting jewelry is nonetheless fun and unique.
Marie Vetrano designed this gorgeous wire work braided bracelet tutorial varying color and bead shapes to great effect. This tutorial is on Michaels' site. Click here for a selection of their lovely necklace tutorials.
Stephanie also has a different take on the ever popular wrapped leather bracelet design. She used colored cord and beads for her tutorial. Pop over to her blog and you will see how she wears it - as a necklace and as a bracelet.
Knitting fans will love OlgaJazzy's cable braided necklace. It's a very clever design because you don't actually do any cabling. You knit just two long strips. Choosing the right yarn that doesn't tickle is also critical. Soft cotton or bamboo yarn may be an option.
The button closure means the necklace can be wrapped around the wrist too!
Jessica over at the ECab blog posted this really easy braided bead strands necklace. It's from a while back and was featured on Pinterest. But a great idea is always perennial!
Steph and Trish over at Le Fanciulle were more ambitious with their braided seed bead stranded necklace tutorial as it goes all the way around. Neat recycling tip using pen nibs as the conical beads!!
Melissa Espin of I Still Love Youp's magic braided leather bracelet tutorial looks simple right? But look again and do you see why she called it "magic"? Brilliant!
