Turquoise Times 2

About this design:

I needed a treat after my mammogram this morning, so I went over to the local $1 store and found the turquoise shell beads as well as the copper toggle clasps( 3 )...$1 each! I'm like a kid with a new toy, so of course, I had to make this bracelet right away!


Turquoise shell coin beads, assorted Czech crystal beads, copper seedbeads, turquoise chips, flexible wire, copper toggle clasp, copper leaf finding.

    Absolutely beautiful! It is amazing that you could create something so nice for such a small amount of money. I hope making it cheered you up. I wish I had $1 store like yours in my neighborhood!

    Love the color and the toggle is great! You must have access to a better $1 store than the ones around here. All I ever find is junky. :D

    We don’t have anything like this at our dollar store. I’m jealous! Beautiful!

    That is my type of deal. Even wally world has trays on the bottom shelf in the bead section that has $1 & $2 deals. I pick through it…always has cool findings, not so much in beads.

    Deb…..I find a few things at Wally World too. This store isnt a chain store like DollarTree–it’s a local place, and they get some great deals. Most of the beads and findings they get in are Blue Moon, and they get new every week!
