Not that I go there decorated like a Christmas tree, but I like having a single (statement) piece of jewelry like an anklet, or a vibrant bracelet(s).
So, lately I've noticed that sequin bracelets have come into fashion again (didn't know that they were ever out!) with an Oriental twist. So, I made some for me and Eva.
Here's the how and the what you need:
1. a) You'll need BIG round (disk) sequins or hexagon ones like the pinks in the picture for a full and dense look. The golden sequins are used as spacers. Unfortunately I couldn't find big golden ones so I used a bit smaller in size. If you can find golden or silver ones to match the size of the other beads, that would be splendid.
b) an elastic string or thread and
c) a needle
2. Big sequins are easily stackable. Get hold of a dozen, stack them nicely and thread onto the elastic line/ string.
3/4 When you make a nice portion you like, add the gold sequins.
5. Add the next portion of sequins... and so on until you are satisfied with it.
6. When finished beading, tie a knot, cut the elastic a bit longer and hide it by going through the sequins again.
We like them so much I am sure there will be another batch coming shortly :)
