DIY Rope and Brass Bracelet Tutorial from Eat.Sleep.Make. This is an easy DIY with everything you need at the hardware store except the wire. I especially like like the wire wrapped ends and clasp. For pages of Hardware Store DIYs go here, and for an archive of 640 DIY Bracelts go here.
Anni Albers, Necklace from hardware, ca. 1940. Brass grommets on length of chamois. ©2003 The Josef and Anni Albers Foundation / Artists Rights Society (ARS), New York here.
Love the patina on the brass grommets. Again, ways to get this various aged or not aged looks all over the internet.
