So, a couple of posts ago I mentioned wanting to make more than decorative jewelry items. Here is a picture of a drawstring wristlet I made by weaving together about 850 bright aluminum rings. The bag measures about 3 by 4 inches, big enough to hold a driver's license, debit card, keys, and a few dollars.
The aluminum makes it lightweight enough to hang from the wrist without a "dragging" feeling. It was fun to make, and while it is foremost a useful item, I think it looks pretty good, too.
