And here is a trio of Steeler bracelets to start the season off right.
On the left is a wrap bracelet, inspired when I read Lisa Peter's post about being addicted to making wrap bracelets. Never one to shy away from an obsession, I did some searches and learned that I am possibly the last beader on earth to have discovered how to make these wrap bracelets. And Lisa is right, they are addictive. After buying materials last week-end, I made the two shown above and a couple rejects. Instead of a regular old button, I bought button cover kits and made the custom buttons shown. I think the one on the right would even be good for a guy since the button is cloth and it's not too girly-looking. And nestled in the middle is my favorite cuff-style.
Below is a closer look at the wrap.

And lest you think they take themselves too seriously, here is the trophy. Unfortunately it is sitting on our fireplace. (Yes, that is a chicken. Your eyes aren't playing tricks on you!)
