My Donut Bracelet Is Almost Finished… Today?

Image Hosting by

I am working on the last donut. This bracelet is taking forever. Why, you may ask? What have I been doing?

Well, a week ago, I got tired of moving stuff to make room for stuff. I decided to tackle reorganizing my computer/craft room. Slowly the room took shape. The way I wanted it. Less clutter. Less mess.

Here are my two banquet tables stripped down to the tabletops. Too bad they can’t stay like this. But then you wouldn’t get to see my creations. 😀

Anyhoo… back to the bracelet.

See that silver tube clasp? That is what I wanted to use but it just doesn’t seem to fit. I really like it and it is a perfect end for a peyote bracelet. In and around, fold flat, stitch. But… I am thinking a matching beaded toggle will look better.

Hopefully I can show you the finished bracelet later today or tomorrow. Stay tuned.

    Is a tube clasp easy to attach when you are putting the bracelet on your own wrist? I have not tried them. Sewing them to the bracelet is easy? Choosing and attaching a clasp is the absolute least favorite part of making a bracelet for me. I would love to see some great tips on what clasps to choose and how to sew them on so that they look the most professional…just an idea!!

      Hi Michelle, this type clasp is very easy on and off with just one hand. When I first started making jewelry, adding the clasp was a challenge for me, too. And some pieces I even ruined and had to start over. I do find it easier now. Maybe I will do a post on adding clasps. Good idea. Thanks!!

    Hey there, Donna,
    That looks like a wonderful place to create! I love those bright primary colors on your storage bins, too. So cheerful! 🙂

    Speaking of color, your bracelet look like blue with a bright raspberry pink AB on my monitor. Beautiful!!!!

    Can’t wait to see it finished.

      Hi Crystal, thanks much!!

      I like those bins too. I wish now I had bought two. They hold a lot, and handy.

      Well, my bracelet is almost finished. Had to make a 6th donut. Now I am deciding on a clasp.

    Can’t you simply make a bar that fits through the last donut? That would look great!

      Hi there. That was what I was thinking about, however, I added a 6th donut and now I think it is to close together for a toggle bar. I am going to try it anyway. But also am going to try a “wraparound” band with a snap.

      More hours. 😦

      But… that is how I learn what works and what doesn’t.
