Desert Dreams Bracelet

About this design:

I wanted to use the new microsuede which is the perfect neutral backdrop for the sparkling raspberry beads, brass, and woven focal I used.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need 2.6mm microsuede, large hole Czech glass faceted rondelles, 1 thread tassel, 1 hand woven diamond, 3 gold coin drops, 1 African brass leaf coin, and 4 African brass tube beads.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Wrap your microsuede around your wrist three times. Leave yourself extra length just in case, then cut with scissors.
Step 2:
Slide the beads on in the order shown. I would start with the bottom tier first (the brass tubes and coin tags), then move to the next tier of beads.
Step 3:
To finish use a bit of glue to attach the crimp ends onto each end of the microsuede, use your pliers to crimp down hard. Then attach the lobster clasp with a jump ring.
