A Pinterest Try In March

Let me put my blog in reverse a little bit and go back to March. There we go! Because I really did do a Pinterest attempt for the month of March.

My jewelry making skills came into play when I decided to make a multiple-strand bracelet. I've seen these all over Pinterest, mostly ones already made up and for sale. Being the crafty person that I am, I knew that all I needed was a little guidance to create a bracelet like this. The help I needed was found on Youtube, however. All I did was search "multiple strand bracelet tutorial" and quite a few helpful videos popped up. THIS is a good one for the basics. Here's what I came up with.

I simply crimped my strands to a large ring on one end and to the clasp on the other end. I liked the idea of adding a couple of little hanging charms, so they went on the large ring.

The hardest part of this project was choosing the beads. My goal was to use what I had in my bead stash and I accomplished that! A few seed beads, silver accent beads, some freshwater pearls, and I had a bracelet.
This technique can be used to make bracelets in a variety of different styles depending on your choice of beads and clasps. This particular bracelet became a gift for my sister, Sheila. I will definitely be making another one for myself!

I hope you enjoyed this post and also hope that it inspired you to do something crafty and try some of those Pinterest projects that you pin! Please bear with me as I get my craft room up and going again after it was used as a storage room for a while. It had kind of put a damper on my ability to do much of anything crafty, but I'll be back in there shortly!
