If you take a look at the strings used in stringing rackets for badminton, tennis or squash, you will notice that they look like you could possibly use them to create handmade jewellery.
No, I am not suggesting that you buy them for stringing beads. Just be friendly to the staff who works on stringing rackets at shops or sport clubs. They may keep some leftover strings that are long enough for you to work on creating this bracelet.
Use shorter length strings for making earrings.
