I’ve been coveting the boho style Chan Luu wrap bracelets for awhile now! These beautiful hand wrapped bracelets are quite the pretty penny. But lucky for you the materials are inexpensive, so time is all you need to do it yourself!
• Leather cord (or any sturdy, thin cord): First decide out how many wraps you want to make. Measure that distance, double it, and add around 4-5 inches extra for the loops at the end.
• Beads: Try finding beads between 2mm-6mm. Anything bigger is a little hard to hold in place. I use 4mm faceted czech glass beads, a 5mm round gemstone beads, and 4mm faceted glass beads.
• Thread: You could honestly use any kind of thread, though nylon thread would probably be the best. I’m just using plain red sewing thread because that’s what I had handy! 🙂 I used 300 inches of thread folded in half for my bracelet that went around my wrist 3 times.
• Needle: You could used traditional or a separated eye style depending on the thickness of your thread and size of beads.
• Button: the kind with a loop in back works best, try to get one about the size of a nickel.
Do you have any request for bracelets or jewelry you’d like to see me make?
