paper bracelet - Jewels of Qarth by Crimefish paper bracelet - Jewels of Qarth by Crimefish
Tutorial for making this bracelet:


This was fun! The bracelets are memory wire, to keep a neat round bangle shape, and the beads are rolled paper, each bead 1cm wide.

I used white printer paper for all of them, then I painted them with nail polish. Some are plain gold; some are dichromic purple / green; some are blue with gold crackle varnish on top; and some are blue with copper varnish sponged on top.

Plus gold coloured glass seed beads at the ends, and gold coloured daisy spacer beads throughout.

I didn't intend for them to be inspired by the Qartheen colour schemes, but afterwards I realised that was what they reminded me of (especially Daenerys in her blue dress and gold jewellery), so I guess it was probably knocking around in my little head somewhere.

(Pictured are 3 identical bracelets, stacked. Going to divide them up and give them as Christmas presents. :aww: )

these are absolutely gorgeous. I think that is one of my favorite color palettes. Just curious, do you treat them with anything or is the nail polish enough to make them last?

How long do these take for you to make?

Thank you so much! It depends how many beads I have to make (how many rows on the bracelet). This one is 6 rows, so the beads took 2 days (ALL day :lol: ) to measure, cut and roll; and another day to paint. Then a few minutes the next day to assemble. :aww:

oh this is all one bracelet? I thought they were individual ones in a stack! Haha, well they're terrific. Love to buy them if ever possible. I will continue to see what you make! Keep it up~

:dummy: Right you are. They are 3 bracelets of 2 row each, but I liked the effect more when they're worn as one. If I'd only made a single bracelet of 2 rows, I think it still would have taken a day or so to make. Currently I've only made them for friends, but I'm contemplating selling them (if I can justify how time consuming it is to make them).
