I've been experimenting more with jewelry-making lately. This week I decided to take the plunge and go beyond my typical, single-stranded bracelet. I found a beautiful red and silver charm at Hobby Lobby....on clearance for 88 cents! I liked that it had the hook in the back and not on top. So all I did was round up all of my red beads (along with some neutral colors that coordinated well) and created this triple-stranded beauty.
It's technically for sale through my Facebook page, but I might keep it for myself if no one snatches it up (so far I've gotten a few requests for different colors though!).
Total cost: 88 cents since I had the other beads and hardware on hand.
Before this I also tried a double-stranded bracelet with some brown beads:
It ended up longer than the bracelets I normally make, but I still love it. This one was "free" because I had everything on hand too. Now if I could just figure out how to make earrings I'd be all set. :o)
