It’s a bright, bedazzled time of year in New England–so why not make some bling to match the season? With an assortment of glass beads in glossy fall colors, you can add a little autumn to your arms.
What you need:
jewelry pieces (I found little silvery leaves and golden bars at my local craft store)
To make: Cut a piece of elastic about 8 or 9 inches long. Tie a knot at one end and thread your beads onto the elastic until you’ve created a strand that fits around your wrist. Firmly knot the elastic (this can be tricky–a couple of times I pulled too hard on the elastic and broke the strand, scattering teeny beads everywhere to the delight of my cat). Trim the ends. Make some for a friend!
