Carol's Tube Bracelet

A friend showed me how to make these cool bracelets using 2x38mm bent metal tubes. Her copper bracelet was made with turquoise Czech picasso rondelles. You can adjust the size of the bracelet by the number of beads at the center. Here's a large version in silver plate with eight 6mm Czech pearls (plus two near the magnet clasp).

This sample in gunmetal (also known as black oxide) finish has only six pearls at the center and fits smaller wrists.

Kits and finished bracelets in silver plate and gunmetal are now available at Anita's Beads. Copper and gold plated versions will be available soon. Magnet clasps, tubes, wire guards, spacer beads, and a variety of Czech glass beads are offered separately as well.

Anita will be demonstrating how to construct Carol's Tube Bracelet at next Monday's meeting of The Bead Club scheduled for October 8th from 7-9 p.m. Come join us!
