We have always loved these bracelets designed by the talented Livvy Hull. We have made them many times and this year we decided to mix it up and make them with Preciosa Pressed Small Candy Twin Hole Beads and CrystaLove Bicones in bubble-gum colours for a pastel summer version.
Ready? Let's Bead! 

You can see Livvy's original design and instructions HERE.

Remember - our tutorials are for inspiration and learning purposes. They include links to the relevant categories for you to choose your own colour combinations and we positively encourage you to experiment with different shapes, sizes, finishes, composition and texture. Why not choose your own beads and colours to achieve something in your own style? Let your imagination run wild and make your dream jewellery.
