Wrapped, Stacked And Layered Bracelet Challenge

Today is the day of the Wrapped, Stacked and Layered Bracelet Challenge hosted by Tracy Statler  Here is the pic of the stack I put together for the Challenge.  I made all of the bracelets myself, in a variety of styles.


I especially like the grunge silk light aqua blue wrap with my toggle clasp that is about in the center.  Fun way to wear some of the wonderful silks that are available now.  This grunge silk is from SowZerE in England.


Looking down the stack towards my wrist

                                           Some of the different techniques I used to make my stack

 Thank you for stopping by to look.  Below is the list of participants in this blog hop and their live hyper links.  I hope you will visit as many of these sites as you can.  You are surely in for a visual feast.

  5. Mary, I just knew your stacked collection would be so beautiful. And what makes them especially amazing is that you made each one....I am so impressed. :-) I love the ceramic and grunge ribbon bracelet - it really is eye-catching. My favorite? The peyote stitch bracelet - oh my is so beautiful. Thanks for labeling each of the stitches you used as well, for a non-beadworker, I find this very interesting!
