Green & Pearl Holiday Bracelet

Hello! This week's bracelet is a simple stringing project that I recently took to a holiday craft night. I wanted something that was easy and could wait until the midnight hour in case there were more complex crafts with paints or glue guns that would take longer to complete.

We each picked a different clasp, but the beads were all the same. I was short a couple of pearls, so I threw in a swarovski pearl at the end to make up the length I needed since this one was for me. You might recognize these slightly imperfect freshwater pearls from the free strand I mentioned in an earlier post on this blog.

The green faceted bicones were on a strand from Michael's and together they make a slightly non-traditional, but cheerful holiday bracelet. I've been wearing this one with a pearl and red/green bracelet and they go together nicely. I had never used these magnetic clasps before and thought it would be a good opportunity. They hold really well if you were wondering. I posted this clasp in a previous post too. It is also from Michael's.

I hope everyone is getting in a little crafting before the holidays. Have a great weekend!
