What do you think about the blue and red color Triple Bicone Bracelet?

Oops, before i forgot, let me highlight the pros and cons of this bracelet.

Pros: Cost Saving (less than RM 8.00/ USD 2.30) and simple to do.

Cons: The thread tends to break after sometime due to wear effect with the edge of the tubes.

QUESTION: Can we use Soft Wire (Tiger Tails) instead of Nymo Thread?

Nope, you can’t because it will make your bracelet looks ungly. However, if you change the 6mm Bicone to 6mm Top Drill 6301 model, you can use Tiger Tails instead of Nymo Thread. I will post up the picture of the design as soon as possible.

Note: Swarovski 6mm Top Drill 6301 is more expensive than 6mm 5301 Bicone.

Look! The picture shown below is the first USA Woman President. Therefore the government decided to have the new president’s picture printed on their notes. :)

Largest Bracelet in Malaysia???

May 7th, 2007

Have you ever seen the Largest Bracelet in Malaysia? I suppose if the bracelet shown below is not the largest bracelet in our country, then it should be “The Largest Bracelet handmade with Swarovski Components” :)

Anyway, i made this bracelet just for fun and for display use, not for the purpose of breaking record (Malaysia Boleh????).

In comparative to the normal size bracelet, this ‘giant bracelet’ can actually put on top of my head as a crown.

The size of the bracelet is about 16cm (Diameter) x 1.8cm (Thickness). The crystal beads that i used are Swarovski Bicone 5301 size 8mm and Swarovski Pearl 5810 size 8mm. It took me 4 hours to finish… OMG !
