BasicGrey Altered : Out of Print Bracelet

Out of Print Bracelet | Erikia Ghumm

SUPPLIES : [OUT OF PRINT] OUT-3331 Lithograph, OUT-3323 Mish Mash, OUT-3324 Publication, OUT-3320 Storyteller, OUT-3316 Etchings.  [OTHER] elastic jewelry cord, vintage and handmade ceramic beads.

I’d be lying if I didn’t admit to gasping outloud when photos of this project landed in my inbox last week.  BasicGrey as wearable art?  Yes, please!  BasicGrey design team member Erikia Ghumm knocked this project out of the park.  You’re sure to get numerous compliments anytime you step out wearing this project.

Even better?  You can create this project in just five easy steps.


Cut several ½” by 12” strips from papers.

Curl paper strips with edge of scissors (just like curling ribbon when gift wrapping). Starting at one end of the strip, wrap the edge tightly around a wood skewer. It helps to roll the very edge of the paper back and forth over the skewer while holding it in your fingers to get it started.

Apply a small amount of liquid glue to the strip as it’s being rolled paying extra attention to the end

Coat the finished beads with clear spray paint or brush on dimensional adhesive.

String beads onto elastic cord and secure with several knots. Trim off excess cord and hide the knot inside one of the paper beads. 


Wouldn’t this make a perfect holiday gift or stocking stuffer?  Now, I wonder what it would take for me to get Erikia to send me that bracelet…

  1. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the
    pictures on this blog loading? I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.
    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

  2. Hello! I know this is kind of off-topic however I had
    to ask. Does managing a well-established website such as
    yours require a massive amount work? I am completely new to blogging however I
    do write in my diary on a daily basis. I’d like to start a blog so I can share my own experience
    and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers.

  3. I’d like to thank you for the efforts you have put in penning
    this website. I’m hoping to view the same high-grade content from you in the
    future as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my
    own, personal blog now ;)
