Welcome to the Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Challenge hosted by Tracy Statler of Make Bracelets Blog. Thanks Tracy, this was a lot of fun!  The challenge was to use one or two bracelets that you already have and add several more to make for a stacked look.  This is what I came up with.

Here they are all stacked up.  Not easy to keep them this way for the picture!

Here they are on my wrist.

This one was made with little peanut seed beads, czech glass, silver beads and one of my lampwork leaves and some little flower and leaf dangles.

This one is made with my ceramic beads, glass seed beads and waxed cotton.  Check out Erin Siegel's easy tutorial to make your own Knot Bracelet here: Art Bead Scene - Tutorial - Sliding Knot Adjustable Bracelet.

This was my original bracelet.  The one that started it all.  This one has leather, autumn jasper and a lovely button by the Fire Goddess.

My last bracelet is a wrap bracelet or necklace.  This one is crochet with glass seed beads, czech glass, silver beads and a pretty silver button.

This one is long enough to wear as a double necklace.

The list below are the participants in this challenge and the links to their blogs.  Check them out!

Enjoy your day,
