Hey there Crafty Peeps Rita Barakat here today. In my travels I have met a lot of ladies that have  interesting jewelry. I especially love the ones that people make themselves. I thought it would be fun to make a little bracelet and right now natural accents are still very popular.So I thought I would take a stab at it and make my own! This is how it turned out!

I used wood beads, burlap flowers, lace ribbon, A chocolate Gelato, Texture Luxe and Bamboo Cord.  This bracelet we are very easy to make so let's walk through the steps… 2-Aug 2015 018 First I  folded the string in half and tied a  knot, leaving a loop at the end. I took the string and put it through that first wood bead, then wrapped around the bead and put the string through the hole.

I put both strings through the next bead and only one string in every other bead after that.

4-Aug 2015 022
I mixed chocolate Gelato with a little water and mixed in pearl Texture Luxe.

I painted this mixture on my beads and it has a really pretty champagne color.

It dries very quickly so I was able to weave the burlap flowers through the cord and the lace. I used the wire to attach it to the lace.

7-Aug 2015 026 Flipping looking a bracelet over I twist that you flowers together and repeated this a few more times. 8-Aug 2015 027 The last time I left the cord long enough so that I could twist it together to hold my bracelet on my wrist.

9-Aug 2015 028
I tied the dangling strings around the wire in the other end so I could twist the two together and hold the bracelet on my wrist..
