CHA Summer: DIY Bangles

By the time we got to the DIY Bangles booth at CHA, we had already heard about their products from the beading booths, the glue booths, and the polymer clay booths. Everyone was talking about these simple, lightweight, unfinished wooden bracelets.

The bangle booth had a huge array of crafters trying out all of their many skills on these little wooden treasures. Scrappers were using their lovely papers to great advantage with a little decoupage medium. Paint and marker artists were turning their skills into wearable art. Ribbon and polymer clay were both being used to add inventive texture to the smooth wrist adornments.

The bracelets sell for a range of prices from $2.00 to $5.00. DIY Bangles, which is a part of Indus Trading Company, also sells unfinished wooden beads and other shapes. We love wearable art… how about you?
