Ok. I know we've all seen those cute little pearl bracelets with the ribbon. Ok. maybe it was just me. Anywho. I decided it would be cheaper to make my own. I got a pack of like 200 white pearl beads at Hobbie Lobby for like 5 bucks. The ribbon was like. 60 cents a yard. Or you could buy it on a roll. I don't remember how much it was. Anyways. remember to buy thin ribbon or it will be harder to strand the beads. If you do use ribbon that's wider, use tape to narrow down the ends. For the narrow ribbon, it's easier to use a sewing needle, the larger kind with the large "eye" I guess you call them. Strand the ribbon through the eye and then strand on the beads. It will be easier to strand since the beads have small holes if you use plyers to hold the need while you pull the beads...Once you get as many beads on as you want, tie a small knot at each end of the beads so the beads won't move around and fall off when you're not wearing it. Then, you're done. I'm really sorry if these instructions are confusing. Just say so and I'll do my best to re-explain.

Not to start a bicker, but not everyone has a camera to post pics of their finished project. I don't believe that this post is either a discussion or a question.

Anywho, Justxoames, I think you did a very good job on your tutorial, I have no idea the kind of bracelets you mean, but I can get a fairly good idea by your tut. Do you like the way yours turned out? It is my opinion that I can make something better at the same price, or cheaper, than if I bought it ;p This is a good project to get my sibs to do when they bother me and complain that they are bored;p Thanks for the idea;p

I'm sorry, I do have a camera but I don't know how to upload pictures on here. I'm sorry but my bracelet was a completed project. Sorry for trying to give someone an idea. and to the other person yes I did like the way it came out. I'll try to figure out how to post pictures so you can see what it looks like.

i like those braclets a lot  Smiley
I really want to make a long pearl necklace so i can tie knots in it...that doesn't make sense, but you put it on and then tie a knot in it and looks pretty cool

hey, maybe we should all just hug?  Wink

Thanks. Atleast I know I'm not the only one who's seen those bracelets. Thanks for the link to the help thing. Much appreciated. The ribbon was 3mm. Where did you get the pink pearls?

I just made a bunch of those from these purpley "pearl" necklaces they had at target right before christmas.  they were only a dollar each, as stocking stuffers!
