Over the years I've come up with a few different ways to create bangles that can fit anyone. My heart went out to all of the beautiful ladies who couldn't find a bangle to fit properly. A couple of years ago I came up with using large zip ties and this idea has been a huge hit. Well, last week I was at the hardware store browsing around for inspiration and I ended up in the rope section. After a few minutes another idea smacked me in the shin (or was it that crazy man trying to get past me?) Voila! The rope bangle that can be made to fit anyone and everyone!
Enjoy! xo, Mark
Try using patterned fabrics, too!
Stack them all the way up your arm!
