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!
