Lace Bracelets?

Anyone wear one? And how do you make it? I would imagine you would have to burn the ends or something like that...

Hockey laces that you make into a bracelet. A lot of guys I played against used to wear them and I'm not too sure how I'd make it without using tape.

You can burn the ends with a match or sew the lose ends together. Most folks i know that i've seen wear them melt the ends.

Is this serious? What's wrong with good old fashioned lacing them up normally?

Sorry, probably wasn't being specific enough but I meant wearing them on your wrist.

Western Michigan— Two years ago(2003), as a sign of unity, the men's hockey team started wearing bracelets made from ice skate laces, an idea of Andrew Dwyer, now a senior defenseman. They fused together the ends of the laces by burning them with a match. When the team got knocked out of the playoffs, coach Jim Culhane proclaimed he would not take off his bracelet until Western Michigan advanced to the Super Sox Championships. Culhane and several players are still wearing their skate lace bracelets.

I just made one. I just tied it, then melted the knot with a lighter. It's a little rough, but gets the job done. I like it.

I wear a black one and I'm considering getting my whole team to do team colored bracelets and keep them until we win our annual rival game.

I'm not sure if this is what was meant by skate bracelet, but I assume it is. Here are a few pictures:

Mines not large enough to take off.

It would be amusing to make one with an entire skate lace, just wind it around your wrist a bunch of times.

Or wrap it all the way up and down your arm. It'd be something new at least

No, it's been done for about 3,000 years now...
