Ivory and Gold Bracelet

I just love the clasp on this bracelet. It's the nuts and bolts toggle from Prima Bead. It's perfect for a diy girl like myself.  I also really like the beads - they're called bicone mirror beads and they come in all different colors. Half of the bead has a reflective coating. It gives it a nice shimmery effect that I LOVE!

 I took some pictures while I was making it, but they turned out awful. Plus, I didn't take them of the whole process. I'm not sure what I was thinking. So I hope the instructions are clear enough that you can make it without step-by-step pictures.

  1. Very pretty! I love the color of those beads. I saw those nuts and bolts clasp while I was down visiting cousin & prima! :)

  2. Love the design! The gold really does set off the crystals well.
