Braided Bangle Bracelet

Inspired by a visit at basket maker Dawn Susan during my Scotland travel and a Video Tutorial by Gustamontón I am working on a new paper jewelry technique. I (sort of) braid a bangle out of paper and add fabric to it. After a couple of failed experiments this is my first piece.

For the rolled paper sticks I used coffee-dyed ingrain wallpaper and wallpaper paste and covered them with bees wax before varnishing. For the fabric „sticks“ I used a cotton knitted fabric, wrapped some thread around it and embroidered it with glass beads and added acrylic paint in parts. Both tubes fitted into each other and were glued.
