Fun, Cheap and Wearable

Who likes jewelry?
I do and that's why I took up making my own. Not only is it cheap and crafty its fun! I thought I'd share with you guys how to make a cute bracelet for under 10 bucks!!

You can get everything you need at Hobby Lobby or Wal-Mart.
You will need... (I don't use exact names, just what I call them :) )
Wire String 1.99 for about 5 yards
Clampers 4.99
End pieces 1.99 for 26 pieces (makes 13 bracelets)
Beads ~ I buy mine at Beyond Beads and they range from.20 to $3 a bead.
The good thing about buying them there is you buy single beads so you are only buying what you need and you won't have a ton left over. You can also purchase beads at Wal-Mart and Hobby Lobby.

Start by closing one end of your bracelet using clampers and end piece.

Add your beads!!

Close the other side

And there you have it, bracelets!!
I know my instructions weren't that in detail but hopefully you get the idea.
