Luu Chan Wrap Bracelets – Jewelry Supplies Needed
Traditional wrap bracelets tended to use wooden beads because they are nice and light. If you want yours to look more like Luu Chan designs, then choose diamonds, silver beads, semi-precious stones and crystal beads.
Leather cord is ideal for stringing beads with large holes or natural beads such as shell, wood, bone, clay, or metal. Use leather cord to showcase a favorite pendant. It braids well and mixes well with other stringing materials to create bold and stylish designs.
