Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Hop

Here are 14 bracelets I put together for this challenge. I usually wear a stack of bracelets,(minimum of three)daily so this was right up my alley! From left to right; chunky glass faceted beads [made for this challenge],red leather wrap bracelet[Wal Mart],3 bangles[made these about 15 years ago, the one w/ the Buddha face bead is a recent repair],B&W leather friendship bracelet[dollar jewelry store], red bamboo coral[made 4 years ago], cherry charm bracelet[Tiffany Gutierrez], lava beads,[made 4 years ago] silver chain[gift, thnx Mom],red trade beads on elastic[gift,mom again] leather cord/double wrap bracelet[made for me by  my oldest niece],stone skulls on elastic[made this a couple of years ago],silver skulls[re purposed from broken wallet chain]. The 8 from the right & the red leather wrap bracelet are in heavy rotation,often worn a couple of times a week.

This is a 'gimme' an extra. When I signed up for this challenge I thought about making a whole new stack,but then I reconsidered when I thought about my tried & true workhorses. It hardly seemed fair to leave them out! So this bracelet is a compromise, yes I said bracelet, as in 1.The last time I beaded w/ my best friend T she talked about "one day taking a whole coil of memory wire I had & beading the whole thing". This wasn't a new, whole coil, but in honor of T I picked up a coil & started stringing. In a strange twist of fate, I ended up w/ 14 different 'bracelets'. I think she would have loved this( it is a BEAST, heavy like you would not believe!) & probably made off w/ it for her own, ; )
Here is your hop list

  28. Both of your stacks are fabulous! I like your first one with your standards and fun bits. And, your single memory wire bracelet is so funny. Not in the way it looks, but in the concept. I could imagine that is is heavy and kinda hard to wrangle on too, but what a fun concept! Thanks for the smile! :D
