Now for a bracelet

So, after playing with the lanyard I got to wondering about other ways I could use that basic idea and this is what I came up with for a bracelet.  

I'm actually pleased with the quality of this/these techniques used this way as it's made a very 'firm' piece.  It's not 'floppy' and sits well just as it is.  Pretty even without any beads.  

I've scanned a closer image so you can see what I've done.  Not sure it's a 'pattern' as such but I am writing it down and also working on some drawings.  There might be another 'incarnation' of this and I want to try that first as I think the new idea will be a real improvement.  Do I see a pair of scissors heading for this bracelet?  Yes, I think I do!!!!

I always write text down as I go as I've got the brain of a gnat.

how pretty! I actually started and finished a bracelet tonight, I was proud. But, it doesn't look nearly as nice as yours. :o)
(I even used HWT... which made me think of you)

Very interesting! Lots of possibilities, I would think.

Don't take scissors anywhere near the bracelet! - because I think it's perfect the way it is.
Probably that's why I am not a designer and you are!

Please, please, not the scissors. I'll give it a home. It's lovely. Can't wait to see a pattern.

Very cool, indeed! With the way the color patterning changes, it seems like Op art.
