I’ve worn silver bracelets all of my life. So I’ve been exploring decorating the wrist with fiber. I love the magic of felting and these bracelets combine these affections. I’ve named them Regina for my maternal grandmother.

The pattern has two approaches to the body. These also work as unfelted, oversized bangles.

There are an infinite number of ways to embellish them. The pattern explains two fiber-based approaches but there are many more you could explore: embroidery, applique’, beading, and buttons, to name a few.

I’ve tested them using two strands of worsted weight held together and this stranding offered opportunities for color play and mixing (loved two pinks and a green).
