This tutorial shows how to make a bangle bracelet using the same technique I used to make the rope for that necklace. The rope for the necklace uses a bead soup mix of mostly size 15s and Delicas in varying sizes with bugles and accent beads, while the bangle uses size 11 seeds and size 15s, and I've added in larger rondelles to show how to put single beads along the rope. This is a modified version of CRAW, using a 'cube' with six faces, so you can change it much the way you could change up a CRAW rope (I showed examples of this in my Color Play Ropes blog post HERE). Endless variations! I hope that this brings some inspiration and fun for those of you who are already comfortable with CRAW, and for those of you who haven't tried it yet, there is a mini tutorial on 'normal' CRAW at the beginning, too! :)
As you can see, I went a little bangle crazy... and I show how to make some of the variations as well, so that you can make a funky rope as well as a classic looking bangle. :)
If you'd like to make some Hexagon Bangles too, my tutorial can be found in my Etsy shop.
I have another special blog post in the works which has some really special guest 'speakers' in it. I'm really looking forward to sharing it!
