Beaded Bracelet

I'm always wondering around craft stores dodging the bead department for a reason (I haven't the patience or the knowledge of how to create all the wonderful pieces to be had).

However, I did find a way to make a simple bracelet and feel like I wasn't leaving the bead department in the dark or my wallet asking questions.



All you need is some beads and some elastic thread.



Once the beads have been threaded secure your knots with a dab of glue to prevent the knot from coming undone.



Next I created a flower/broach from ribbon which can be worn with or without your bracelets. The jewels were in the $1 section of the craft store as well (there were several in a pack).



To attach the pin on the back I secured the ribbon to a trusty nickel (I was out of button covers) and used the gorilla glue to do the rest.







Wall-ah! A nice little addition to my vintage collection. I think this will spruce up my cardigans nicely

Have a great Friday. I'll be linking up to these parties..won't you stop by for some inspiration.
