After dropping off the ark curtain to be quilted, I decided this was the day. I have a list of fun projects for just a day like today. A couple of them I picked up at the bead show. I do love beads. I decided to make what we quilters would call a scrappy, beaded expansion bracelet. Lime green is my favorite color, so I gathered green, white, and clear beads and some charms.
This is the expansion bracelet as I bought it.
There is a slot underneath each of the ridges. There are 3 rows of them.
To make the bracelet you just need a round nosed pair of pliers, head pins and lot and lots of beads.
You attach one bead at a time with a head pin.
The head pin keeps the bead from falling off the metal wire. I turned the bracelet on its side and attached the beads a row at a time, continuing in one direction.
Finished in less than a day.
