These seem to be popping up everywhere!  I decided I must share mine also. Super easy to make once you get the stitch down.  I have a hard time making multiple wraps though cause my beading string tends to get tangled.  So I have been making more than one so that they can be worn stacked.
These two purple bracelets were made for littlebluegirl in the Ongoing Pinterest Swap


This green one was made for my step mom for mothers day.


I used different sizes of beads and I am not sure if I like this effect as much as beads that are all the same.

These are lovely!

I especially love the purple ones!

And if you ask me, I like beads of the same size better. But that's just me!

These are very pretty. I gotta agree, I like the same size bead ones better.

Those look great! 
I bet the multiple sized style might be easier to work with if there was an intermediate sized bead between the large and small.  The taper towards the ends looks slick!  Even so, I like the different sizes.   It gives it a different texture that is really cool. 

The purple ones for your swap partner are gorgeous too!

Looking to de-stash cross stitch magazines, particularly Cross Stitch Gold or New Stitches?  Please drop me a line!  I'd love to swap or buy some missing from my library!
