This is a very cute bracelet idea and perfect for any formal type outfit such as for a wedding or prom. Be prepared to use alternate materials though because I think Prima Beads must be going under as none of the social sites have updated in a year and their website is down.

This is a beautiful Summer bracelet. Light, pastel and delicate. I am a silver gal so mine will be done in silver plated chain. It's such an easy, inexpensive bracelet. You can take the idea and run with it. Red, white and blue, black and white, just about any color. I am thinking green, red and silver for Christmas. Thank you for sharing.

I am really digging this color combo! When it comes to jewelry, I tend to strictly stick to silver and gold. But, I love the pop of color on these pearls and can totally picture someone on their wedding day rocking this bracelet.

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

Hi there, This project was designed by Prima Bead. All materials should be available via their website: For the Oval Chain Copper I did a quick search of their site and I think this is the item you are looking for: Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Happy jewelry making! -Editors of
