When I saw this collage showing the gold tubes bracelet designed by french jewelry maker Marion Vidal, I thought that this was genius to use metal tubes and weave in wide ribbon. It also looked so good on Blake Lively (collage courtesy of Mode Walk )
I decided to make my own version of the bracelet by using gold colored pieces of the leather (2.5" x 2") and 1" wide grosgrain ribbon. For the closure I used the same toggle closure I use on all my DIY bracelets. Look HERE
SO, here is my process:
1. I made 5 "tubes" our of my 2.5"x2" pieces of gold leather using a thread and a needle. You also can use a metal tubes, if you can find it. For me it was easier to use the leather and I did not want this bracelet to be heavy.
2. Then I took two pieces of 1" wide ribbon and 24" long each, and started weaving in and out of each "tube"as I show on my diagram, through all five tubes, leaving some length for the closure.
3. Then I adjusted the length of the bracelet to fit my wrist and attached the closure with thread and a needle. Voila!
