If you like your jewelry to sparkle, a rhinestone accent is just the thing to take this throwback bracelet pattern to the next level. You will love this beautiful cuff. 

From the blogger: "Pink and green are always a winning combination and they’re sure to please with this Prep School Cool Cuff from Margot Potter of Cocktails Cupcakes Crafts for AllFreeJewelryMaking. If these colors don’t rock your boat, change it up to suit your style. This bracelet is so fun and easy to make, you can whip up a wrist full in a rainbow of colors."
