Please meet my new silk turquoise bracelet. I love silk fabric for it's beautiful silky sheen and I also LOVE how it feels to the touch - smooth, sensuous and a little bit cool. This is why I thought there is no better way to enjoy silk fabric than wearing it on my wrist. I already made one Silk Rope Braided Bracelet and I really like wearing it. Toggle closure works great on this kind of bracelets, so I used the same closure in my new bracelet as well. I also used the same golden chain for embellishment, small wooden bids and the same technique that I used when making my Large Bead Necklaces
As you can see, the variation of making bracelets from silk are endless. To make it happen, the only things you need to have is silk fabric, sewing machine to make a tube out of fabric (although it can be done by hand), toggle closure of your choice, small wooden beads, maybe some golden chain accent, thread and needle and Voila!
I like to wear this silk bracelet with one string of white fresh water pearls. I think it creates nice contrast with intense turquoise color of the silk and allows it to stand out even more. The combination of turquoise, pearl and gold also reminds me of Byzantine style jewelry, which I love. Nail polish OPI Kiss on the Chic, #NLH31.
White large leather clutch in my hand - my DIY project as well, I will talk about it in my later posts.
I never talked about the source of my silks I use in my projects. I find that the best variety of colors and prints, as well as different fabric textures, at the outlet fabric store. Also, you should not forget to check your own closet. You may find there the fabric you like but actual garment - not so much. So, recycle and give that fabric new life! Pin It
