I've been into wearing bracelets lately, and usually I wear small single-strand bracelets. These pieces are really easy to throw together, and you can string one onto stretch cord in just a few minutes--no findings and no tools needed! This time I thought I might experiment with something a little different:
This bracelet was fun to make. I enjoyed experimenting with beads of different sizes, colors, materials, and opacity. The final piece ended up with a combination of glass, metal, and semi-precious stones that I have accumulated over the years. Usually everything I make is matchy-matchy in monochromatic colors, but this time I went with purposefully unmatched beads.
I used a sterling silver multi-strand clasp and crimp beads to attach the four strands of beads. It took me about an hour total to put this together.
I love the feel of this bracelet when I wear it. It has a good weight to it, and the variety of colors mean that it will match a lot of different outfits. Now I just need to make some matching earrings!
