I have no problem with it or this.

Boho bliss looks a lot like boho heaven. I love this necklace. I love all of the brightly colored threads used to mimic beads. I have never made a bracelet using this method, but I have all the supplies I need already so this project should be an easy peasy for me. This one is a new way to create necklaces and bracelets.

Very pretty idea. My grand daughter will jump at the chance of making this with me. I have every thing we will need to make it and the directions are very easy and basic. The combinations of colors is endless. She will have one done for every one of her friends when she goes back to school.
