I love the trend of layering bracelets. I can't go too overboard though because I type a lot at my day job and too many bracelets just don't work. Bangles don't cut it either - they are too noisy and don't stay put. I started looking online - department stores, Etsy and lots of other sites and I found several I liked. The problem was the price and how long it would take to get some of the Etsy products to me - up to 3 weeks in some cases. Therefore I decided to make my own.
I got my inspiration from several sites online and was able to duplicate several of them almost exactly. I don't like the sliding knot type bracelets so all of mine have lobster claw closures. I found the charms, dangles and slides at craft stores and some came from my stash. The single and double strand bracelets were super easy - the multi strand and I had issues.
The three below I wear as single, double or all three one once.
This one is my favorite - a doubles stranded brown cord with sterling textured slides.
This one is my least favorite - I had issued with it and it turned out a bit bulky and I wish there was a bit more bling to it.
