Free Travel Friendly Jewelry Project
No crimping pliers, no wire cutters…no problem! I ran into a dilemma last week as I was preparing for a weekend trip: I wanted to bring a jewelry project with me to help pass the time during my flight, but knew I wouldn't be able to get any pliers or wire cutters past security at the airport. I'm sure this is a hurdle that many of you dedicated beaders have also faced at some point during your creative careers. Instead of risking the confiscation of my tools (which probably would have resulted in a serious hissy fit), I decided to leave them at home and came up with these TSA-friendly bracelet projects. (Find the step-by-step instructions for the woven rings bracelet–gold rings with yellow/orange/blue cord–below!)
The only materials I needed to complete all four of these bracelets were an assortment of ribbons, gold chain maille jump rings in various sizes, and the washers and nuts from my local hardware store that I mentioned in last week's blog.
