Tried this craft? What did you think?

Lovely! I have a small complaint though why are so many things described as being meant for weddings? This bracelet is ideal for anyone to wear any time -- It simply calls to one, wanting to be worn with blue or pink, to add soft colour to a white dress or top, or black for that matter... I have to have this set and I was married ages ago.. it is a beautiful set for anyone bride or not

Sorry I didn't mention which item I was referring to. 1 pk 34718051 100in Oval Chain Copper. I believe I can find the other items at one of my local craft stores.

There is no mention of where you got your supplies to make this item. I cannot find it by the item number at Michaels. If you order on line could you please let me know of the website. Thank you

All materials should be available via their website: https://www.primabead.com/ For the Oval Chain Copper I did a quick search of their site and I think this is the item you are looking for: https://www.primabead.com/100in-oval-chain-copper Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.
