Dark and Dainty

It's all about do-it-yourself bracelets this week on blah to TADA!

Today's peg is a bracelet I saw while on the subway. A young lady beside me wore a stack of colorful wrist pieces. The one that caught my eye was made of a skull with crossbones, flanked by salmon-colored beads. I loved the contrast of something dark, with something sweet and dainty. I had to make one to call my own.

I used pink beads, remnants from a blah, broken necklace. 

I found my diamond-encrusted skull and crossbones at a New York City bead shop. I got it for $2.50.

I assembled my bracelet using this clear, stretchy cord {I used two strands}. I finished it with tight knots. 

 TADA! A new bracelet made from an old necklace.

 Cute contrast

Pink and silver party!
