Dreamy Butterfly Charm Bracelet

by Angela Lees

If you find crow beads challenging to work with, this kit could convince you otherwise. This bracelet pairs Czech glass beads and Swarovski crystal bicones in mystical colors to create this fresh twist on these classic large-holed crow beads. A single butterfly charm flutters gracefully, surrounded by all of these pretty dreamlike colors. A fine TierraCast toggle clasp and silver toned findings provide just the right finishing touches. This piece is so dreamy!
