Day 191 - Filament bracelet

Today we made something very simple: a small, thin rounded tube for turning a scrap of filament into a simple bracelet. Despite how simple this is, it took over a dozen prints to get it just right so that it would hold the filament securely. The resulting bracelet is the top one in the following picture:
