Elastic Pearl and Birthstone Bracelet

Tammy Powley
I was looking for a different style in mothers' and grandmothers' bracelets, something that would be easy to wear and also easy to put on and take off. After playing around, I came up with this Elastic Pearl and Birthstone Bracelet version. The clear and light amethyst crystals in this bracelet represent the birthstones, and I used jet colored crystals around these as accents. Since both the clear and the amethyst crystals are so light, the dark crystal beads help them stand out. The addition of silver daisy spacer beads also help the birthstone crystals pop a little. Obviously, you can adjust the colors of crystal beads you use to represent other birthstones. Also, this can be used for either grandmothers or mothers.

You'll need will need the following tools and jewelry making supplies to make this bracelet:

4 - 6mm Jet AB Swarovski crystal beads
1 - 6mm Light amethyst Swarovski crystal beads
1 - 6mm Clear Swarovski crystal beads
15 - 4-5mm Pearl beads (oval shaped)
21 Sterling spacer beads
10 inches of .05mm elastic cord
Scissors
Binder clip
Your choice of glue
