About this design:

I loved the summer fun multi strand bracelet so I designed another one with more strands and different colors!
I did not like the sliding clasp that I used as it keeps opening; I think I need a multi strand bar with a toggle or lobster clasp.


The stones that I used in this one are: Sesame Jasper, lapis tubes and chips, Peach Feldspar, Russian serpentine cubes, gray and black wooden beads, Malachite rounds and chips, sodalite chips, African Opal Rice, black, orange and clear seed beads! I also used Beading wire Accu-Flex clear 49 strand, 0.019-inch diameter, crimp tubes, crimp covers and multi strand clasp!

    Thanks Vee and Karin for the compliments!
    The clasp just slides in not magnetic, I tried it and it kept opening, I think my bracelet is too heavy for it!
