You'll love the Casual Elegance displayed in these bracelets. Cheri used the thread wrapping technique to add fun beads to each bracelet. The result is a fascinating textured look that will complement any style. Don them on an evening out or pair them with office wear. They look great anywhere! You'll discover more ideas for using thread wrapping techniques in designs in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
