|Waxed Linen Stack|
After participating in the waxed linen blog hop last week I got the itch to try some more designs with waxed linen. What better way to try different designs than to try layering several together. I had a day where I just wanted to make something but didn't want to pull out all my beads and supplies - easy solution, waxed linen thread and a few beads. I pulled out some gorgeous natural colored waxed linen that I purchased from White Clover Kiln on Etsy and a few beads that I had in my stash and started creating. The first bracelet I did was a simple flower design that I found on Beadaholique's website. I modified it to the beads I had on hand. The second bracelet is a braided wrap bracelet that was found on a blog post on I Always Pick the Thimble. After finishing these two bracelets I was going to make a third waxed linen piece but I found a bracelet that I already had in my collection using similar beads to the flower style that I had made using a tutorial picked up from The Gossiping Goddess's blog. I was so happy with how these turned out, simple but fun. I think I may have to make some more "stacks". For more inspiration on stacked bracelets and waxed linen, you might want to check out Erin Siegel's blog. She is the waxed linen queen and has many inspirational tutorials and ideas on her site. You can find my post on stacked and layered here and a peek at my "arm party" blog post here. Keep in mind that some of these arm party stacks in that last post are maybe a little overboard, but a 20 year old wrist can pull off just about anything. Inspiration for some of these bracelets was found on Erin's blog as well. Enjoy - I know I sure did.
