Thin line bracelet


This bracelet has a very distinct line of color running in the middle. The color of the middle line can symbolize profession of the wearer. For example blue – police, red – firefighter, white – medic, etc.
The weave of the bracelet is very similar to the cobra weave with every second knot being tied around just one of the core strands.
