Olympic Inspired Bracelet

Let the games begin!
I love the the Olympics for the competition, the drama, the stories and hearing the National anthem of little known countries. I felt inspired to make something to show my enthusiasm as the games are about to begin. So I started with a few pieces of felt, some silver rings and two bracelet ends
Next I cut the felt it to 1/4 inch width strips in the colors of the rings. The ring colors represent the five continents that participate in the games.
Then I took the five rings and looped them together in a chain.
Next I looped the felt pieces thru the end of chain on both ends.
And then trimmed so that it was about 2 1/2 Inches long. I then placed the end pieces it to the bracelet end and crimped it closed.
This was the toughest part as you have to make sure all your ends are secure when you crimp. I repeated the process on the other side and my bracelet was almost complete.
Lastly I attached a chain and a lobster claw so it would be easy to wear.
And it was done!
Ready for the Games!
So easy!
I shall be wearing it starting Friday!
and sining along with every Anthem!
Enjoy!

  1. I love this! I think it's great that you didn't do a literal interpretation, but used the Olympic symbol as a starting point.
