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?
