Project Description:

As a kid, my family used to spend a lot of time in Santa Fe. I think that is why I am so attracted to coral, turquoise, and silver. This bracelet was inspired by my love of the Southwest and my love of Miyuki multi bead mixes!

Rating SUPER cute & easy
 
I made this but used Auntie's Beadalon memory wire. Soooo easy. I get tons of compliments every time I wear it! Ooh - next time I will mix in some 4mm Swarovski Tucson Mix from Auntie's!
