Now is the time of year when I love to go for walks in the neighborhood and “flower-gaze”. Big perennial bushes are proudly showing off their new spring blooms. Tulips are happening . . . daffodils have already taken their final bow and are getting ready for next year.
Springtime is perfect for floral-everything. When I was digging through my boxes of jewelry-bits, I came across these rose-printed beads and knew that they would be perfect for a DIY bracelet.
I chose a heavy chain for this bracelet; I like weight in a bracelet these days. Thin chains are fine and dainty, but I want this bracelet to be noticed when my hands are animatedly moving during a good conversation.
Yeah. I’m a hand-talker. I can’t be the only one, right?
- 1 length of gold chain
- Wire cutting pliers
- Flat nosed pliers
- Round nosed pliers
- Beads of your choosing (mine are from Michaels)
- Gold eyepins
- Gold jump rings
- Gold clasp (I used a toggle)
It came together very quickly.
Those of you who have done that awkward elbow to the sky, twist-around-while-you’re-trying-to-do-up-your-bracelet dance will appreciate the simplicity of the toggle clasp.
