Summer Chan-luu

22 Jul

As I’ve been away for a couple of days in the mountains for a short break I brought some “work” with me and made this “Summer” Chan-Luu bracelet with 4mm green and red/pink agate beads and natural leather string.

I quite fancy the button…

Two weekends ago I went for a short break in Umbria with my friend Paola‘s family and friends and we were (Paola and I) supposed to carve out some time for ourselves to brush up on the Chan-luu tecnique and make a new bracelet.

Of course we didn’t have time to do so, but since I had all the material ready I decided to make one on my own.

I used some golden/bronze leather string along with pink Jade multifaceted 4 mm beads and gold plated glazed beads. I also modified the tecnique a bit compared to my first Chan-luu. Instead of starting with a loop (the button hole), I begun with introducing the button first. While I left some string unused in the end so to have an adjustable locking.

I think it works better!

I normally don’t celebrate my name day, but since it is one day before my friend Simona’s name day (and she usually celebrates it) I made her this Chan Luu bracelet, with glass transparent and iridescent beads and an aviation blue leather string.

I also took this chance to make my “name brand” debut: “the Red Panda” or either “the Other Panda”… I haven’t decided yet.

Anyway, the sticker also sports a kanji which stands for the Japanese translation of my name. 🙂

My “brand”: the Red Panda
