Wrist wraps are so much fun to make!
We've got all the "goods" every Saturday at the Little Italy Mercato.
Start by choosing a hand-dyed silk ribbon.
I know, this is not the easiest task, but if you ask real nice-like, I will help you, :).
And then, let me try it on you...tada! Cute huh?
Stacking is a trend that I am loving!
Our wrist wraps add an interesting texture,
color and personal touch to your collection.
Come on, make one already!
Leather wrist wraps can also be worn as a headband!
Stack em' up!
Mom's crocheted ribbon wrist wraps are multi-colored
and also hold charms and beads.
A tiny gold buddha is my daily reminder
to try and live an enlightened life with a peaceful mind.
My wrist wrap fave???
Layer a crystal & leather wrist wrap on top of a multi-toned silk ribbon.

I recently spent some time rummaging through a few of my friends jewelry boxes,
discovering old treasures, sentimentals from grandma, and lots of inspiring jewels!
I love getting it all out, cleaning, re-working, repairing and rejuvenating.
Getting it all tidy, in boxes, on cool iron stands, on trays and in drawers is so rewarding.
It feels like you've got a fresh new jewelry wardrobe!
What a good way to start the new year.
