I am a HUGE fan of the arm candy fashion trend and love using triple wrap bracelets as the base for creating the perfect arm candy look. The other day I was trying to figure out how to incorporate pink into my gold arm candy to get a polished look that I could wear in a business environment or casual setting. After looking through all of my jewelry supplies I decided to make a pink pearl bracelet using elastic string and glass beads. This was a simple and inexpensive diy jewelry project that I just had to share…oh and did I mention it only took 10 minutes to make from start to finish???
Before I get started I must apologize, I didn’t realize it until I was finished with the bracelet that my SD card in my camera was messed up and is not recognizing some of the pictures I took, so I don’t have photos for every step like I usually do 🙁
Here is what you’ll need:
- Medium Size Glass Pearl Beads
- Elastic String
Step 1: Cut a piece of elastic string about 23″ long (depending on your wrist size you should be able to wrap this bracelet around your wrist three times and still have about 2.5 inches left over)
Step 2:Tie a triple knot at the end of the string and begin stringing the pearl glass beads
Step 3: Continue stringing the beads until you have about 2″ left on your string
>Step 4: Tie the two ends together so that the beads on both ends are as close to each other as possible (When tied together it looks like a short necklace)
Step 5: clip the excess string (Make sure your knot is extremely tight before cutting otherwise it may come untied and you will have to start over)
And you are all done!! Now you just need to layer in a few more pieces and you’ve got yourself some fabulous arm candy!!
So…What do you think of my gold and pink arm candy?
As you can see this Easy DIY Beaded Pearl Triple Wrap Bracelet is extremely versatile and can also be paired with silver, rhinestones and leather!
