Indian Bracelet


About this design:

This is the second version of this bracelet design. The first one just didn't work out and got torn apart. This is actually a stretch bracelet. I haven't really worked with the stretch cord before, so this was new for me. Thinking about making a anklet too.

Components:

Toho seed bead mix, brass starfish component, 24ga wire, stretch beading cord

    Thanks, Ravin, Lorrie and Beth! I was shopping for certain colors of sz 8 seed beads for another design and happened on this mix. The beads remind me of my beaded Indian moccacins and I had to buy them too! The strand of starfishies was a closeout. I had to bend this starfish a little to work with the design and he sure was a tough little bugger!

    These are great colors, would go well w/ shorts or jeans, and the starfish worth the extra work- a little summer fun!
