I made a bracelet out of nuts. Hurrhurr.
I thought this one would be really easy because every dude has extra nuts just laying around, right? But I asked my husband, and he disappeared into the abyss of the garage and returned with seven nuts. Total. In the whole pile of miscellaneous stuff in the garage.
So I had to procure my own nuts. (Why am I even married, jeez.)
So the creation process is pretty simple for this. You braid some yarn, and then you start braiding in your nuts. Or the ones you procured from your husband. Or the nut store. Whichever.
If you have trouble holding everything because you only have two hands, employ the use of other digits.
Now, seemingly, braiding nuts into a bracelet shouldn’t be that difficult, and it started off well enough.
But then I lost my grip and the nuts went nuts.
By a process of trial and error, I figured out that you have to treat the nuts very gently. Do not yank or pull. Just let them rest gently on your leg. Or wherever.
It took a while, but I eventually created this:
I almost gave up here because it looks like a Borg spine and I am not wearing that shit as jewelry, but when you get this far with your nuts, you might as well finish, I guess.
The other reason I’ll probably never wear this? Well, see for yourself:
This bracelet has nuts and dangly bits, and I see no reason to have both.
And it still looks like a Borg spine.
On the plus side, if you stole the hardware from your husband, you could just put the bracelet in your bag and then legit claim that you carry your husband’s nuts in your purse.
