Making a bracelet

Remember when I blogged about simple wood bead necklaces? I finally got around to making a bracelet version of the Elizabeth and James necklace! I swapped out the topaz for Swarovski crystals, used up some wood beads I had kicking around, and picked up some vintage disk beads to get the look. Simple and elegant.
Tools and materials: Scissors, Swarovski BeCharmed crystal rondelles, 12mm wood beads, 10 to 12mm black disk beads or flat sequins, Clear stretch beading string, Large needle
Cut a piece of stretch string– about 2 feet– and thread through the needle. Begin sliding the beads onto the string. I used 14 of the wood beads, added about 25 of the disk beads, a rondelle, then another 25 black disks.
Once all the beads are strung onto the stretch string, tightly tie the ends of the string together in a double or triple knot. Trim the ends, and voila!
