Sari Fishtail Bracelet Tutorial
Created by: Rita Hutchinson
Using files and sanding sponges, refine the ends of the cuff bracelet until it is smooth and comfortable to wear. Adjust shape by hand as desired, to fit your individual wrist.
The length of ribbon needed to braid onto this bracelet will vary depending on width and tightness of braid. This ribbon is about 10mm wide, and a bit less than 2 feet of ribbon (including knot and tail) was used.
Fold ribbon in half, wrap around bracelet (from the inside) where the wires separate, and begin to braid: bring each side over in a fishtail pattern, and end with a knot at other end.
Our hand-dyed silk ribbons would work well for this design. Search for "61-479" in our store (or see link below).
