Though I have demonstrated earring construction and have wrapped many loops on Karla Kam, I have yet to do a Drop Beaded Project. So I am incorporating bead cap usage with different shapes, sizes and colors of crystals to make a unique drop beaded bracelet!

Great for drop beads and a pretty charm bracelet
Love this video tutorial! It is easy to follow her instructions and I really liked seeing how she combined different bead caps with the crystals. I think I'll be able to make some nicer loops and wraps now as well...she made it seem easy. I'll definitely be using this tutorial in the future. Thank you for sharing this great video tutorial!

I'm going to start selling my jewelry at local shops! Thankyou Karla for showing me the basics! You will always be the best!

Learn Drop Beading
I made this bracelet with a certain person in mind....MY SISTER!! She loved it and thought I had spent a lot of money on it at some fancy store. I enjoyed making this bracelet and made one for myself. Another favorite of mine! Thanks Karla!
