Winter's Night Bracelet

About this design:

I wanted to use colors that depict a winter's night. The dark night sky porcelain and some silver shimmering beads symbolize shining stars, and the pearly white for snow.

What you’ll need: (buy products below)

You will need turquoise 1.5mm leather cord, 6 large hole pearls, silver filigree rounds 8 & 10mm, 8 porcelain beads, and a button.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
I cut about 3.5 feet of cord. Fold the cord in half. Create a loop by tying a knot at the folded end. Make sure it will fit snuggly around your button.
Step 2:
Take one cord tail through the top of the bead hole and the other tail through the bottom up. Pull tight. Keep doing this for all the beads. The pearl holes can be a bit snug, cut your cord at an angle to help you get it through the pearl holes.
Step 3:
I looped the cord through the button, then tied a knot and added a little glue for security.

    Andrea, I love this piece for so many reasons. The ceramics & large hole pearls used together provide a nice contrast of style. To top it off, the weaved turquoise leather in & out of the holes creates a flow and rhythm to the piece. Definitely will bookmark this one for later. Great job! :)

    Andrea, fantastic bracelet! After winter, I would say it was a night sky. Bingo it goes from a Christmas bracelet to a night sky to wear it for the rest of the year.

    Love your symbolic bracelet. I can see the dark sky, the lovely shimmering stars and the snowy trees and ground.
