I’m totally a summer surfer chick. I hate winter, wetsuits, and the snot sniffles from cold wind and water. Easter’s almost here, which means we finally get to shake the snowbirds and tourists and log some serious morning longboard sessions. Schweet.
I’ll be thinking of my favorite fun summertime surfer chick movie, Blue Crush, and I’ll imagine that every mackin’ one foot wave I catch is Pipeline’s Wave of the Day. To complete my vision, I’ll make my knockoff version of the prop bracelet Ann-Marie wears in the movie just so I can get into my summertime frame of mind….
For reference, I looked at the movie poster, stills from the movie, and even found a blog post that had a close up of the actual bracelet from the movie. It is a wrap style bracelet, so it’s one long piece of knotting wrapped around the wrist to look like several stacked bracelets. Soooo way cool, duuuude.
- Hemp twine
- Medium size glass or gemstone beads
- Small to medium size bone beads
- Two hole button for toggle closure
- Glue (optional to secure knots)
- Work surface (a clipboard or thick foam works well)
- Clips or pins to hold your work in place while you knot
For info on the types of knots I used in this project, check out my little guide.
Here’s a picture walkthrough of the steps I did, but of course, you can mix it up to your surfy taste.
So, let’s see if I can make this look surfy enough to get me some cred going…..
I might not be ready to win at the Pipeline Masters, but I’m always ready for fun in da sun, which is all I want on my Bucket List….
