SO, I was SOOOO happy with how my 1st 2 beaded projects turned out, my dangly Rainbow Beaded Bracelet and Deep Blue Sea Beaded Bracelet that I decided to try some more!  I am SO in love with this style now Smiley



LOVE the dragonfly and leaf charms I decided to mix in with the green glass beads.  Magnetic closure on this one.  These magnetic closures are SO strong, said that in my last post above, and it really is true.  Been wearing those last 2 projects of mine out and about for full days at work and errands, have not had one come loose yet!


Green plastic beads.  I noticed someone remarked on my last post that plastic wouldn't look as pretty as glass, but I found some really nice plastic beads and decided to give it a go.  I think this came out VERY pretty Smiley  I added an extender as I thought I may keep this for myself, but I likely will sell it.


Pink plastic beads.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, so I thought I would make a nice little awareness bracelet to commemerate.  Again, these are plastic and I think this looks really great!  Love the chunky beads, they remind me of delicious candies Smiley


Cute little child size bracelet.  I think these orange and yellow beads together look like citrus fruits.  I only had a small bit of chain left off of one reel, and I had several of these glass beads, and that is how this creation came to pass.  The beads have an iridescent look to them.

Thanks for looking!

They're all really pretty - and what do I know?  I thought they were glass before I read your post!

Well, I thought about it when you said plastic may not look good...but I think it really depends on what plastic beads you get!  There are the cheap-o pony beads and other stuff, then there are nice acrylic beads like the ones I used on these Smiley  They end up being MUCH lighter with the plastic beads, but look just as great!

very nice! You're rainbow bracelet is inspiring..mainly because I am obsessed with rainbows. To get this look you simply attach two beads to each link on the chain correct? One on top and one at bottom?

raeraethejetplane - That's what I did Smiley  The technique may be the same on all of them, but what beads you may buy or choose to make these bracelets are what makes them OOAK!

Thanks so much for your kind comments Smiley  I'm trying to gauge interest a lot before I devote a lot of time and supplies to make items for sale that may not be saleable...that's why I made several with myself and my own tastes in mind, as I'm not one of those 'lemme post this so I can advertise for free' people on here...I'm posting for research purposes ahead of possibly making any mistakes.

Yeah, the rainbow one is one of my faves...I am caught between the blue one on my last post and this green dragonfly one being my total fave...I think I may have a touch choice on my hands!  Cheesy
