D-I-Y Braided Wrap Bracelet

Who doesn't love jewelry? Especially fun, colorful jewelry for spring and summer!

Lulu has been asking me to make some bracelets for her for a couple of months now. Of course, she's very particular (I have no idea where she got that)..."I don't like that kind of closure", " I want this color", "only make it wrap around my wrist twice", "that one is too wide", "that one is too skinny", "those beads are too big", and so on. So how this bracelet started out is not how it ended. But I'm going to attempt to explain the direct route of getting to the end product rather than taking you on the convoluted route that I was forced to take!

Since I was winging it, and because I had already cut the hemp, I ended up with a bracelet that has a short side & a long side. What I mean by that is: instead of the cord being equal lengths on both sides of the "circle", one side is the length of a normal "half" bracelet, and the other side is long enough to wrap around twice. But you an make adjustments to the tutorial and have two equal sides if you like.
