Star Stretch Bracelet

Hi Everyone
Today, it's day 3 of 12 Days of Jewellery @ thepapersac and the item of the day is a Star Bracelet.

The bracelet is made up with 18 large sized Star Beads ( look back in the series for details of how to make) and 18 tiny seed beads, the seed beads act like a spacer which allows the Star Beads to lie flat on the arm. I've threaded the beads onto a clear elastic 0.8 mm stretch thread. I've also finished off the knot with a sterling silver crimp cover bead. The beads have been sealed and lightly buffed giving a slight shiny finish.

This bracelet is a very easy make and could be made in lots of colour and/or bead size combinations. I think the star shape works well as a Christmas bracelet and the single colour is subtle 'nod' to bling. The tiny silver element adds to the bling and gives a touch of sophistication. This bracelet will co ordinate with any of the earrings in the series, so you could make a more elaborate gift by combining little projects. I hope you are inspired to have a go.

Thanks for reading
