Project Description:

"Bubbles, bubbles all around- Both big and small ones to be found!" Blown Glass beads remind me of bubbles...they are hollow and mysterious and look as though they could float through the air. I combined these "bubbles" with beautiful round sea glass beads (also called recycled glass) and added 6/0 seed beads in Blueberry. Three strands to envelope your wrist in blue, bubbly fun and whimsy!

Note: I will be using the Blueberry Mix randomly and I find that when using a multi strand clasp it is best to keep it together, so you don't make a mistake and crimp it upside down.

See below for step-by-step project instructions and links to all the materials and tools used in this jewelry project.
