This Week's Project: Leftover Bead Bracelet

I forced myself to make a few minutes today for beading! I don't mean to let on that I had so much going on I had to squeeze it in... I really mean, I made time within my resting/relaxation time today :)

I had a handful of these 12mm swarovski pearls left from the Crystally & Pearl Winter Artbeads.com project I made, so I was able to quickly connect these pieces using jump rings and a magnetic clasp.

Yay! I LOVE a simple project!!

I'm looking forward to wearing this tomorrow and enjoying the sparkle!

I wish you all a great new week with a little bit of creativity thrown in for good measure!

I've never been a big fan of pearl beads. They just don't click with me on a creative level. I like the flower bead though. ^^

I had to laugh, make time to bead? LOL, I have to make time to do anything else. LOL, seriously my husband is ready to kill me. I love the bracelet and the pearls! Pearls are so classy, very Jackie-O! Love it!

Lisa...This is so cool and elegant! Very nice! One question, I have lost one bracelet and a customer had one fall off, too, using the magnetic clasps. We were traveling and mine unknowingly came unclasped in a parking lot of a grocery store in Santa Fe, NM! If anyone found a cute bracelet with dyed orange stone beads at the Albertson's on the south end of town....it's mine!

Seriously, I no longer string beads on beading wire for bracelets (might break too easily) and I use toggle clasps for them. Instead of stringing them, I make bead components as you did with the pearls and connect with either jump rings or split rings (stronger than jump rings).
