Buy or DIY: Bead and Floss Bracelet by Vivien Frank

Jewelry is a great thing. It changes your outfit from blah to wow and is one of my favorite things to buy. But sometimes you see something, or at least I do, and I think, I could totally make this myself. This so happened with the Vivien Frank bracelet I spotted at Blissany. The bracelet is a delicate combination of tiny golden beads and blue thread. And it only took me about 10 minutes to make it myself. Here is the how to....

What you need:
  • Blue sewing thread (the Vivien Frank bracelet is silk thread, but any other works just as fine)
  • Crimp beads
  • Needle
I used 1.10 metres of thread. Double the string and thread it throuch your needle. Thread as many crimp beads as you wish and crimp two beads at either end of the thread and the two beads at either end of your row of beads. Knot your bracelet like you see in the picture below, knotting only one piece of the thread around the other piece, giving you the opportunity to move your knot to open or close the bracelet. 

Aaaaaaand done....
