Dainty Seashell Beach Bracelet

Dainty Seashell Beach Bracelet

Hi there! It's Dominique here, and today on the blog,  I am going to show you how to make a dainty, beach bracelet, using the newest bead range from Just Bead It! I am focusing on the adorable glass seashell beads for this main feature of this design, which reflect in the light to show different iridescent colours, depending on how you look at them. I have also used a new technique today, which involves a metal finding that I have never used before; bead cones! I really love the look they give to the finished design; all the strands are compact at each end, and in the middle they fan apart to show the design clearly when worn.
