Saturdays with no formal committment are wonderful for drifting from one fun project to another. Throw in a craft store or two and it's a little bit of heaven!
I've been tossing around ideas for using these bracelet blanks from Rings&Things this week. In fact, I took a couple of them to work and asked some non-beading coworkers for their thoughts.
Most people seemed to go the conservative route and suggested gluing flat back beads to the disks. A couple suggested using it as a charm bracelet. I did have a conversation with one crafter about decoupaging flat round wooden craft disks. We also talked about using decorative paper punches and decoupaging the cut-outs.
I thought about using the tiny black jump rings I featured recently in some way to hang some dangles from the links, but didn't like the look of that. It then occurred to me to add the outer strands using this simple chainmaille design and as it took shape, I really liked it.
I was able to find the black flat-back disks in the scrapbooking section of the craft store to glue on the disks. I must say I like the look of this finished product. Let me know what you think and if you have any other cool ideas!
Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!!
