Holst + Lee inspired rope bracelet

Holst + Lee inspired rope bracelet
I am loving rope jewelry right now. Bright, fun, tribal, and perfect for Spring. In my opinion, Holst + Lee does it the best. This necklace? Wow. Or this one? What you will need: Begin by taping your embroidery floss to the rope. Wrap your embroidery floss around the rope once, and then add the chain – wrapping in between the first two crystals. Continue to wrap, wrapping around 3x between each crystal. Hold it steadily, and wrap away. When you are halfway through, knot on your second color, and keep wrapping. (Go back and snip off the ends later.) Keep on wrapping… when you get to the end, tape the end down, just as you had done in the beginning. Apply a small drop of Gorilla Glue to each end, and slide on the end cap. Allow to dry for 1-2 hours. Thread your jump ring through the end of the cap and close it. Add your clasp… And voila, your bracelet is complete!
