This bracelet kit accentuates our new heat sensitive mood beads by interspersing them with Double AB - Aurora Borealis - coated Swarovski crystals. The multi colored finish of the Swarovski crystal emphasizes the color changing feature of the mood beads and gives the whole project a sparkle.
Enough beads are included in the materials list to make up to a 10-inch bracelet. Because the average wrist is only 6.5-7 inches, you may have enough materials left over to make a pair of earrings and/or a pendant to match.
