This week I have a special treat for the guys in the audience. I made a masculine bracelet. Most of my jewelry is for females however, I have made some cufflinks and tie pins. It surprised me that most of the male jewelry that I made has sold. One gentleman at a craft fair told me that he didn’t see many things for men and he was disappointed, so that’s what gave me the inspiration to add the cufflinks and tie pins.
One of my co-workers asked me to make him one of the new macramé bracelets that they are showing in the stores. He wanted all black, so I used black hemp cord and 8 mm black onyx beads. The bracelet fits an 8 inch wrist and can be adjusted by either pulling on the cords at the end of the bracelet to make it smaller, or pulling the bracelet apart to make it larger. The piece that keeps the bracelet closed is also the mechanism used to adjust it.
I have several new orders for this bracelet so it may be after the first of the year before I put one in my shop. If you would like to place and order for one I will need to know the size, in inches, of the person’s wrist and the color beads you would like. It’s too late for Christmas but you can always put a certificate in an envelope letting the person know that their gift has been custom ordered. To place a custom order please send an email to me at email@example.com and I will get back to you with an expected completion date.
Have a very Happy Holiday season and Happy New Year!
