I have very limited time these days and I have to think very carefully about what can be done in a 90 minute to 2 hour time frame while my two year old takes her afternoon snooze. I am happy to report that from start to finish, this fun bracelet only took about an hour and fifteen minutes. I have to give thanks to Erica and her blog (http://honestlywtf.com/diy/diy-beaded-bracelet/) for the idea and instruction. I think it will prove to be one of my summer staples!
I used brown waxed linen, size 6/0 beads which are a bit bigger that the one she lists in her blog and an aqua sea glass bead for the clasp. The finished piece measures 13.5 inches and wraps twice around my wrist.
Oh and one more thing... after making this bracelet today I managed to post this blog entry before my daughter woke up from her nap. YES!
