Holiday Green

I found a strand of these Blue Moon beads over the weekend at Joann, Etc. and thought it would be fun to work them into a non-conventional holiday bracelet.

After a little trial and error I have found that I want the square to remain empty so I will run a copper toned headpin through the hole from inside to outside the bead, with the head of the pin flush against the inside of the bead. Then I can either add a bead and make a loop with the remaining wire or just make a loop with the wire.

This is as far as I have gotten on the design and yes, I probably should have started thinking about this weeks ago, but I think I like the pressure! :)

Hope you are having a great week so far!

You find the cutest beads at Michael's and JoAnn's - my store doesn't have that great of a selection. Can't wait to see the finished product - I love square beads.

That sounds great Lisa...the copper will set the green off nicely!!

You are lucky you have bead stores close by...the closest for me is an hour and a half drive...

Cheers

Those are cool! You could also link them together with peyote strips connected to rings. I saw a bracelet like this with Swaro squares.

I love the look of copper and green together. That's why I did my earthy set that way. This will look cool!
