These designs incorporate techniques that include wrapping, twisting, braiding, beading and macramé. Once you master the techniques, go beyond bracelets with coordinating necklace, earring and brooch designs made from a variety of materials, including leather, gemstones, pearls, beads, fabrics, and thread. Be inspired to fashion a new design for every outfit in your wardrobe—and dare to be bold and layer the bracelets together so you can wear them all!
Here's a variation on one of Keiko's designs that I made with C-Lon cord and some vintage beads. Instructions are found on page 91 of the book.
