I didn't much like wearing cuff bracelets at first, they seemed to always turn around with the opening up. Now, because I make them oval and not round (DUH!!) they sit nicely where they are sat.
Thanks, Jackie - the two top ones were my first attempt to make beaded kumihimo and I didn't have the right thread for the task. The thicker thread can be seen between the beads which isn't very nice. Got the right thread now and will make prettier beaded braids once I reach the bottom of the pile of braids I've accumulated. I wish they'd sell faster, tho. ;)
