      Hello I have a cotton bracelet on my wrist, and it has stayed for almost 2 years now. Through water, including ocean water, and all sorts of situations. But I will be devastated if it falls off without me knowing. Does anyone know a coating I can apply to it to make it last? Thank you so much.

      I used to make braided bracelets and chokers years ago, back in hippie days. I got so I could fingerweave up to a few dozen strands. Lots of fun! And a great way to pass time during boring lectures in college . . .
