Making braided bracelets is so darn hard. I try'd using @AisforAnika's bracelet tutorial and I did try making some with cotton strands, but I made them too short or something else went wrong. I will try again another day. Here is the link for Anika's tutorial http://www.classettes.com/.
I used some chenille threads called 'Spruce' and incorporated some old beads I had including 'Gold Stone'. I got the Gold stone from a Bead fair that happens in Penriths 'Reged Centre'. I am actually going there next month for the fair http://www.rheged.com/craft-and-bead-fair. Even though the bracelets didn't turn out the way I thought they would, I actually really enjoy wearing them as they are so soft and tactile.
