Comic Inspired Bracelet:
Comic inspired jewelry is made out of anything and becomes anything. It is based upon your own imagination and desire for the piece you are creating. The Comic inspired way of creating jewelry is very experimental and allows you to have a uniquely designed piece or pair that is all your own. You can use metal, wood, plastic, fabric, clay or any other kind of material that can be used for jewelry if you so desire.
If you want to make a bracelet, you will need materials to make the bracelet out of. Many of these DIY comic inspired bracelets are made out of hemp so that may be the first material you should use. When you have your hemp roll you will need o cut three lengths all equaling the same size from the roll. Each one should be 9 inches long.
Once you have cut these cords, you will need to line the ends up together so that they are matching. Then after you have the ends lined up you will need to tie one end of the three strands together into a knot so that the strands are secure. Begin braiding the cords together for about two inches. Be sure the braids are tight because if the braid is not tight then you risk the chance of it unraveling later on.
After you have finished the two inches of braiding, you will need to pull the unbraided end into a knot, so that it secures the braid you have just done. Next, add a bead or whatever type of material you have decided to use on this bracelet and slide it all the way up to the knot you just made. After you have placed the bead or other miscellaneous material you have chosen for this project, you will need to tie another knot to secure the bead or material.
Measure the wrist of the wearer of this piece you are making and then continue this process of breading two inches and adding the material until it fits all the way around the wrist of the wearer. Once you have finished this, you will need to get jewelry claps and place the pieces on the ends. Claps the piece together and allow the wearer to show off your terrific piece.
Comic Inspired Anklets:
The same process can be done for ankle bracelets; you just need to cut the three hemp strands at 12 inches instead of nine. Be sure to measure the ankle in case someone has a bigger than average ankle. This helps make the jewelry even more custom to the wearer.
