Do you Chan Luu?

Its been a long time since I've made my own jewelry (circa 2003 in college when I decided to string a multi stranded seed necklace during finals week – I'm a multi tasker.) And to be honest after teaming up with Stella & Dot I figured that was never gonna happen again. Never say never ahe?

Enter my friend Emily and her fabulous bracelets. While working at the shop one day she was accosted by several customers asking her whether her bracelets were Chan Luu. She happily replied she made them and then offered us a lesson!


Emily was a fabulous instructor and armed with some red wine and procecco we were all happily getting our Chan Luu on. 



Murielle even brought out her head lamp! (A must for every knitter IMHO.) After we worked up a big hunger making our bracelets we were treated to a delicious pallella made by the host's husband, Gary.


To which we happily dined on.

We all chose different styles and colors and it was fun to see the different varieties. I doubt this will be the last time we get together to make some!


Thank you Linda for hosting, Emily for the fabulous instruction and Gary for the food (and being the photographer!) Looking forward to making more!

    I can’t stop thinking about trying to make these myself – can you tell me what the diameter of the beads and cord you used were?
