Materials: Lillholmen Cotton pad holder

A cotton pad holder can be made into bracelets. Draw a line across the cotton pad holder where you want to cut it. The best tool for this is a waterproof marker and a paper line with the width of the required bracelet, wrapped around the metal.

The metal pieces are them wrapped with leather. Add ornaments from mica, slate, wood and crust to further embellish the bracelet. Mica and slate are special rocks: you can make very thin slices out of it and also it is quite easy to form with a metal rasp and with the help of some pliers.

See detailed instructions of the Ikea Lillholmen bracelet.
