DIY and leftovers/ 5 bracelet

This bracelet was made by Mr. C. The knot is called a snake knot and if you look closely it does resemble a snake a little bit. Mr. C has got tons of string remnats from previous projects. They're always useful for trying new techniques as was the case with these remnants. But the first attempt turned out so well that I requested (more like whined and batted my eyelashes) that he make a bracelet for me. And he did!


  1. Ooohhh, pretty! Do you have a pattern for it?

  2. Shirley: If you google snake knot you'll find tons of instructions, some more some less comprehensive. Tha's why I didn't include a link in the post. Mr. C however got his instructions from this book:

  3. Lately similar types of bracelets have become very popular. And I can understand why.
    I really like them on young ( your age groupers and younger ones ). Mr. C made a lovely one.
    I´d save the expensive bracelets to the older generation. I think that we have earned and are worth them ; )!

  4. Mette: I agree to some extend with you. Though I believe that it isn't so much about earning the right to wear them but rather learning how to wear expensive pieces properly. They must be worn with a certain mixture of sophistication and ease, something that takes years of practice.
