Its a happy time people - the sale season's here!! Intricate, beautiful items on my wishlist calling out temptingly at half price or lesser! I'm sure many of you do the Cart Dance as I do at this time of the year - add to cart, remove, ummm..NO!.. add to card again, remove again!
Now unless one is super-loaded or the Queen of England, one has to prioritize and decide what it most important/necessary to get this season. You know, to have money left over for food and all. Although, it is a very difficult choice! So kudos, to all of you out there who know what I'm talking about (Self-pat!).
Anyhow, kidding aside, I was doing my usual thing with these pretty bracelets and necklaces that seem to be everywhere now:
I'm so in love with the colors and patterns of these African tribal inspired pieces!
Now here's how can make a similar version of these with sequins you bought for sewing projects that didn't get used up!
What You'll Need:
- Your favorite sequins - I had these iridescent pink ones - about 10 grams or even lesser
- Elastic beading cord
- A pair of scissors
Step 1: Start by pushing the sequins through the cord.
Step 2: Continue pushing till the length of the stack sits around your writs comfortably.
Step 3: Double knot and seal with a drop of glue.
Step 4: This was the easy version - you can even play with the findings and add seed beads that pop out!
Or make memory wire clasp bracelets!
That's a whole bunch of sequins gone and new set of summer bracelets right there! :)
