Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Bracelets


I do love a good challenge. I find it hard to resist them. And now this one. All about many many many bracelets being worn at the same time. Yes, I do agree with Tracy Statler of Make Bracelets Blog who came up with the idea of this challenge, it looks awesome. Go to her blog to find lots of inspiration on nice bracelets just in general.

Now - Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Bracelets - here's what I have made:


I started off with a bracelet that I actually made a few weeks before I entered the challenge. I call it Travelling by Hot Air Balloon. He he, don't you agree it gives you that feeling. (Or perhaps it's just me?). Glass and ceramic beads and a big brass colored button for closure.


Then I made this multi strand one with seed beads of many different colors and large white pearls.

Seeing those two together, and the color scheme, I came to think of a piece I put together at the end of last year. With MissFickleMedia's purple chain and Mary Harding's ceramic clasp. I haven't yet decided on if it's enough as it is, or if I want to add more things to it. But here, and with the other bracelets it works perfect just as it is.


Finally, I decided to also add another previous piece of mine, The Little Bird. Here's my blog post on that.


Here they are together again, and layed out.


Now have fun checking out everyone else's stacked bracelets:

beautiful set, I love the pop of green & the purple chain

CraftyHope said...

Your color scheme for this stack is really perfect for Spring. It totally reminds me of pastel-dyed Easter eggs and girls in frilly dresses. They really work together well!

Pretty Things said...

Malin, I SO love how you work with color!

Pixiloo said...

What a wonderful and fun set of bracelets. The colors just make me smile. I love your little bird as well. :)

These just scream spring to me! I love that little birdie. And the one that has Mary's toggle and Shannon's chain. Simple and stunning.
And I am with you about challenges. They are like my crack. ;-) Enjoy the day!

Wonderful stack Malin. Love all the different textures and styles. I was so surprised and pleased to see my toggle clasp. Great colors and all so well crafted.

Jo said...

Gorgeous bracelets - but of course they are, you made them! I love how you mix colours and textures and sizes together to always come up with something that is exactly right and so uniquely you. Travelling by Hot Air Balloon is my favourite.

Such spring like colors. Like the mix of bracelets that you used.

Holly said...

Malin, what a lovely bunch of bracelets! So springy and fun! I love that Mary Harding clasp and Shannon chain...

Cathie Carroll said...

Your colors are luscious and I love the Little Bird!

The purple chain is really lovely and it gives the eye a place to rest within the rest of the color explosion. Great choice.

Your bracelets with all the beautiful bursts of color is like a beautiful melody. Very pleasing to my eye. Well done!

Cindy said...

Malin, your bracelet collection grabbed me the minute I visited your blog! The colors you chose are just so harmonious and very different than any I have seen in this challenge. I just love the multi-strand bracelet and the classic one you made with Mary Harding's clasp. An absolutely beautiful stack of bracelets!!

Alice said...

Malin, all of your bracelets are lovely on their own, but togehter they are absolutely gorgeous!!!

I find it difficult to resist challenges too, and sometimes I get myself in touble timewise, and then kick myself for trying to do too much.
