BENGALURU: Silk thread jewellery is quite the trend these days, especially with the craze for terracotta and polymer clay jewellery dying down.
Here is a speedy method to get your own bracelet or bangle that dazzles. This could also work well for festival-wear and your little one’s school performances when you are left scrambling for those matching accessories that go with the right costumes. Alternatively, gift it to people you love.
Materials: Plastic bangles, scissors, embroidery or silk thread, craft-glue and sticker bindis of rhinestones
■ Roll the thread over the bangle such that it falls along in regular lines along each other.
■ Towards the end, knot the ends and glue it towards the inside so that it does not protrude on the outer side of the bangle. That way, it gets hidden when you wear it will be on your hand-side.
■ Embellish using the sticker bindis using craft glue.
■ Your new bracelet is ready.
