A Wrap Bracelet Tutorial

Celtic Wrap Bracelet Tutorial - A Simpler Grace

One of my favorite hobbies is making jewelry.  I've been making bracelets, necklaces and earrings for over ten years. It started when my husband and I were in a jewelry store getting my engagement ring inspected and cleaned when we saw this beautiful necklace that was several strands of gold seed beads and a Venetian glass pendant.  The price on the necklace was over $800!  I looked at my hubby and said, "I can make that for less than 20 bucks" and I did.  I found very similar supplies in my local Michaels store and completed my necklace in less than a day.  Since then, I've loved the craft.  I've even sold quite a few pieces to friends and family.

Today, I'm going to show you how to make one of my favorite styles of bracelets - the wrap bracelet. I don't know about you, but fiddling with a clasp with one hand to get the standard bracelet on is a pain in the you-know-what.  It's also difficult to find bracelets that fit my wrist well - either they are too big and roll down my hand, or they are too small and "choke" my wrist all day long.  While I do make standard bracelets with the clasp, my favorites are ones that just wrap around your wrist and fit any size.
