Meteor Shower Bracelet


Meteor Shower Bracelet

Meteor Shower Bracelet

Few beaded bracelet patterns have as much pop and personality as this Meteor Shower Bracelet. Beaded jewelry doesn't have to be boring to be easy to make, as this festive project shows. This DIY bracelet design takes a simple beaded pattern and adds clusters of colorful glass rondelles between each bead to add some sass and pizzazz. The faceted black beads catch the light each way they turn, giving this bracelet some extra glitz and glitter, and the varied palette of the bead clusters gives it a range of rainbow colors. If you like beading designs and patterns that are elegant but still a bit funky, then this is the jewelry project for you!

Beautiful bracelet and the names were all great! My question is how do you make the "bead drops" that are called for? Thanks for any and all answers.

Beautiful name for a beautiful bracelet. I think it will be very pretty on my wrist. I read the instructions and it's not hard at all. I have everything I need except I want to change the clasp to a magnetic one. If I make something for myself I like to do that since I live alone and my hands aren't as nimble as they use to be.
