Did you make this? If so, I would love to learn how you did it or see the turorial. This would be perfect for my girls!
I love that!!! And it’s so easy to do! Did you use a specific kind/size of wire?
I used the thinnest gauge memory wire I could find because the holes in the beads are really small and picked the one that looked about wrist size. Sorry I don’t have the packaging anymore to give the exact specs. I don’t generally do jewelry making but this was a really easy project.
Any idea how much each one cost to do roughly? I’ve been wanting to make my bridesmaids something but I have a strict budget to stick to. I’m setting aside $50 per bridesmaid and I am hoping to give them a little tote bag filled with goodies.
I paid about 12 cents a bead and about 70 beads in a three strand braclet with the wire you’re looking at $9 a piece.
Compared to $38 which is the cheapest triple strand swarovski pearl I couls find online, that’s quite a savings, but you could do it even cheaper if you went with generic glass pearls.
Thank you so much for showing me this! I now have another project to add to my DIY list!! 🙂
Where do you get the wire to make these? And did you buy your beads from artfire? Awesome job, I think I could make something like this for my ladies!
How many of each bead did you use?
I got the pearls here:
I used about 70 total beads for three strands. Four differnt color pearls & one antique silver was about 14 each of each per bracelet.
The silver beads I got from a random eBay find.
So about 14 bead type on each bracelet. Did you measure your girls wrists or just kinda wing it? I’m really considering doing this! 🙂
These are super pretty! They’re simple, yet elegant. Excellent job–I’m sure your girls will love to get these!
These are beautiful! What a perfect gift. I’m definiteyl going to check out the You Tube video. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks Ladies!!! I didn’t measure, I just made them to fit me. The wire is flexible so it should be forgiving.
