OK, they actually arrived, but I prefer keeping them as work in progress, I will explain why later.

The Scoobie Bracelet and the Twisted Scoobie Bracelet are two bracelets made like lanyards.

The regular one is made of 4 strings forming actually 4 loops.

For the twisted one, I twisted one end of a quarter of turn before joining both ends. It is made of one single string and thus one loop (similar to a moebius shape).

Their internal circumference is 20 cm.

Unfortunately, they are not flexible as I expected. So your fist has to go through a circle of 20 cm of circumference if you want to wear them. I'll try to make thinner strings (currently they are 1.5x3mm) to get a better flexibility (hopefully). That's why they are still tagged "work in progress".

Check the video.

Do you like them?


So many things to design, so little time...

Yes, you are right. It should work with Elasto Plastic. And the thickness should be enough.
But I am not really convinced by the black color...
I will perhaps give it a try: I have still 6 days left to decide Smile

[EDIT] Arghhh: the clearance should be 1.5mm so unfortunately this design won't work with Elasto Plastic (only 0.5mm of clearance)
