… first time etching …. this technique is harder than it looks, at least the way I was shown how to do it ….
A mini project for a lazy afternoon: a colourful bracelet, that can also be worn as a necklace.
It wraps around my wrist for about 8 times and as a necklace for about 3/2 times, depending on how long you prefere it.
Looks nice with a black top 🙂
List of tools:
seed beads (many different colours)
lobster clasp + 2 jump rings
transparent nylon thread (or regular thread)
I used 5 different colours, alternating them, and using black as the main colour. It’s an easy project you can do even with your kids. You just need to pay attention to the order you string your beads on not to skip any colour. That way the colours will look nice and uniform. I kept forgetting the black after each colour 🙂
… work in progress
… and the finished bracelet / necklace
