Summertime fun

About this design:

I saw a bracelet like this on you tube- it was so easy and a great way to use up some of my 6/0’s. My granddaughter called dibs and actually had interest in making one (yippee! All is not lost in the teen years)!


6/0 seed beads, 1mm leather cord, Czech glass button

    Yes, Very Fun! Love the multi strands of happy colors–put a smile on my face the minute I saw the post. I like how the 1mm leather gives the piece some substance. This is a fantastic piece to wear all year long! :)

    I totally agree with everything that Crystal Canary said. My teenage neighbor started making stretch seed bead bracelets last summer after she was one I made for her little sister. She took them around town selling them to her friends. We do still have some influence on the teens around us. She now has boyfriend and no time to bead.

    Cute bracelet! I agree, leather wrapped bracelets are fun! I like going crazy with color in my more summertime pieces. I think I’m going to continue to add more color no matter what season. Soon enough we are going to have to turn our sights onto Fall pieces. Robin…I’m baking my PC pieces tomorrow. If you all don’t hear from me again…you’ll know I burned the house down.

    I like these colors. It’s so nice to have time with your granddaughter. Crafting together creates a stronger bond. You must have gotten the button from LB because I have a couple of those exact same buttons and I’m pretty sure I bought them here.

    I’ve always loved these bracelets! This is wonderful! I just love your work. That’s so great that your granddaughter wants to make one too. That makes it even more special and the fact that she claimed it right away is the best, she’s got great taste! When I step away from my wire I need to give this style a try it’s so fun and I want one for myself!

    On another note I was just looking through your designs and I love how varied your designs are. I love that you are always doing something a little different. That takes great skill.
