Like many crafters I have an addiction to the shiny, glitzy and pretty baubles.
I have been collecting beads in many forms for years for that "someday" when I will make something fabulous.
While this bracelet is not fabulous, I happen to be very fond of it and have enjoyed wearing it for a few years.
The first one was purchased and made with beading thread. This did not hold up well at all. When it broke many of the beads just disappeared. So I used the basic design, stuck in mostly my beads, leather and button clasp. Instead of beading thread, I used tiger tail, a stainless steel thread. I may even be doing some classes on this bracelet in the future.
