I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted for a bridal bracelet so I decided to try my hand at making them. I used 8mm and 10mm beads from Eightjewelry’s shop on Etsy. http://www.etsy.com/shop/eightjewelry And, I got the tools from Artbead.com. Lastly, I bought the silver wire (half hard, 22 gage) with a coupon from Michaels.
I used this tutorial: http://www.artbeads.com/wrapped-loop-ht-video.html
I think it goes with my Nadri earrings really well!!! 🙂

Sooo pretty. About how much did it run you with all the supplies, if you don’t mind me asking. I’m trying to figure out if it’s more cost effective than buying something?

Nope I don’t mind! I bought beads to make my bridesmaid something as well. So this is what she charged me for the beads:
20pcs 8mm and 5pcs 10mm =25pcs $21
total:2items $23.6+ship fee $5.3=$28.9
They ship from China so it took 4 weeks for them to get to New Jersey.
The tools I got with a coupon for 20% off so that was around $25 from artbeads.com. I bought two chain nose pliers and 1 round nose pliers. I used wire cutters that I have around my house. I hope that helped!

OH! And I bought the silver plated wire from Michaels with a 40% coupon. So I spent $4 there. It was half hard 22 gage wire I believe!
