Bead Table Wednesday

Yesterday someone ended up on my blog googling for how to make a Chan Luu bracelet. I have no idea why, since I never mentioned one… but it made me curious. How do you make one? So it was my turn to google for tutorials, and I found a couple, like this:

I usually have a bit of a phobia of doing anything that requires thread and a needle, as I am rubbish with those. But this looks easy enough, so I’ve decided to try one (though looks are probably deceiving…)

So today, I have some thread and leather and some gorgeous sparkly beads on my table – no idea if anything will come of it, but I’ll try my best. The design still lacks a button for the closure, though – maybe I’ll make one from polymer clay. And I can already tell that this bracelet will be a pain to photograph – as the beads are.
