Turquoise and Red Bracelet


Hi Everyone,

Today I want to share this simple "eternity" inspired bracelet.

It is so, so easy to make and your imagination can go wild with this little project....

Many years ago I had 3 elastic turquoise bracelets which eventually broke and I have had the beads saved for ages. A while back I made a mixed red and turquoise necklace that I ended up taking apart as I didn't like it so much.

But I did (and still do) like this colour combination - it goes really well with denium and white.

Okay, so all you need are beads, crimps, a clasp or toggle and nylon line.


Thread 2 lines of beads...


Bend one line in half and secure the ends - I used a crimp then threaded over it to disguise the end. Secure to your clasp during this step.



Do the same with the second line remember to loop it through the first line of beads - as in the pic below


Here is what it looks like on...


Super easy, right?




Take care, till next time...
