Project Description:

I used 3 strand spacer bars and three different beads (onyx and turquoise along with light siam crystals) to create a colorful bracelet with a lot of impact. This is probably one of my favorite multi-strand bracelets to date!

Beautiful bracelet. I think I will be making it in black onyx & white crystals. I see that they use split ring to attach the clasp. I am going to try that.I just use a jump ring but the split ring would be strongier.

I love the use of the multi-bead spacers and ends. These colors are stunning but it would also be beautiful in pastels or autumn blends or just various colors of glass pearls or even one solid color like onyx or carnelian!
