Spring is in full swing where I live – the trees are flowering, the bees are buzzing and the weather is getting warmer. Inspired by the awakening of nature and the fact that I got rid of a large part of my jewellery last year, I came up with the idea of beading a couple of cherry-blossom-inspired bracelets.
So I went to the craft store last week and stood in front of the beads for about an hour, deciding which pearls I wanted to buy. They offer beads in all kinds of colours and in every shape and material you can imagine. I already knew that I wanted pink/rosy tones, but I’m not a very decisive person, so it took me quite a while to figure out which combination I liked the most.
I finally decided to go for these very girly pink beads and golden and pastel pendants. I had first thought that the actual beading wouldn’t be that exciting, but it was actually a lot of fun! You can create your own designs and it costs much less than buying a bracelet at the store. So, here is what you need and the (yes, kind of unnecessary) instructions:
What you need:
- accent beads
- elastic nylon thread (transparent)
- a bracelet that fits you well to measure your wrist size
Quite easy – simply cut a generous piece of your nylon thread and start sliding on the beads!
Try not to drop the nearly finished bracelet like I did…twice…those beads just disappear right into another dimension the second they touch the floor…
As I’m quite happy with the result, I’m already planning to make more beaded bracelets for summer!
