More Resin Fun
Fun summer bracelets can be as easy as some stretchy stringing stuff and a bunch of resin beads.
For instance, from the Resin Rocks page, you can go for a monochrome look, or select different colours and make a multicoloured piece. Thread them on stretchy stuff,(a wire needle will make it go MUCH faster), and secure with a surgeon's knot.
This bracelet looks way complicated, but it's actually pretty freeform.
After going around once, to make the initial bracelet - I decided to add to it by adding 3 or 4 beads, and doubling up, reattaching to the main bracelet by going through every 4 bead or so. After going around a second time, I went around a third time, filling in the gaps. The end result is a delightfully chunky piece that is light and comfortable to wear.
Feel free to experiment! You never know what you might come up with!
