Actually, I've always loved to braid. I taught myself how to braid when I was 4 on a Skipper doll. I think she was Barbie's cousin! ;) Anyway, I played with that doll's hair so much that I stripped the blond right off! So began my love affair with braids.
Last week or so ago, I ran across some braids with wire. They looked beautiful! Of course I wanted to try them for myself. I found a tutorial for the Crocodile Ridge Weave Bracelet and I was hooked! I think I've made about 6 of these so far!! Here is a picture of my first one.
I showed it off to some guy friends of mine and they like it too, but said it was too narrow for them and asked if I could make a wider version. Here is my 1st attempt with that.
The weave was a lot looser and didn't come out exactly as I'd wanted, but still looks pretty darn good, if I do say so myself!
Next I decided to get a little creative and mix different colored wires together.
