A Bracelet - Butterfly Garden...



 Hey Everyone,

I made a new bracelet... I love bracelets, love them. Can never have enough bracelets in my opinion. So I hope you like bracelets, because I have many more up my sleeve ......okay so that wasn't actually funny ;-)

Anyway.... this little bracelet just made me think of spring. The little green flower bead is actually out of a fun pack I bought for Payton in the kids section of Spotlight.

Here's how you can make a twisted bracelet. 

Select your beads and findings.
Cut 3 lengths of nylon thread (or fishing line)
Loop one end of each thread and crimp - I threaded each loop through my clasp before crimping.
Thread your beads and charms on.
Measure the length against your wrist then end off with a loop and crimp to secure.
Lay the 3 lengths on a flat surface and loosely braid - you may only do 2 or 3 braids.
Add a jump ring to the 3 ends and the clasp .


Cute and so, so simple.... And she looks like spring!


 What do you all think?
 
Take care

  3. I agree - you are the bracelet queen, Nat.
    I just love how you play with different beads. The green rose makes it different and than the butterflies. And a fine touch of pink on top:)
    It's a whole story. Or a garden, yes!
    Cheers
