This bracelet is so easy to make, & looks like you spent hours on it! The Coiling Gizmo is a staple in my jewelry supplies. It makes beautiful beaded beads that look so complicated, yet it's fun & a breeze to use!

I've made 2 of these the as soon as I received my GIZMO. They're so easy that they will definitely be something I make for Christmas presents. I'm also going to teach a class for some Middle School girls and I think they will also love this. Great pattern... Can't thank you enough.

As pretty as this bracelet is, I mixed it up a bit and it blinged even more. Wonderful idea and fun to make.
