Rope jewelry is a popular trend. So I was especially taken with George's one button rope bracelet tutorial over on his What Knot blog because it is an innovative approach.
What he does is basically make a rope fabric varying the infilled colors for color. He shares his tips including how to use a PVC coupling from the hardware store as a mold (note to self : use it as a wire work bracelet mandrel).
The carefully layered rope lengths are sewn together. George also includes instructions on how to tighten these cross threads carefully while still maintaining a flat bracelet. Who knew cable ties would come in handy for jewelry making?
