So this is what I got. This is my first bracelet though it is not exactly like a Chan Luu.
Leather cording long enough to go around my wrist twice. $2 (the bead store had it cheaper then Michaels)
Wax cording to weave. $1.40
A button to close the bracelet. I had this.
I think it is cute and fun to do, cost hardly anything compared to buying one. I will be making more.
