I saw a bracelet like this in a magazine the other day and loved it...the one in the magazine was over $100 (a bit out of my budget). I went to the mall the other day and searched all over for a knock off version and couldn't fine one any where so, I made one. I found the instructions here. I got all the supplies at Hobby Lobby for a ton cheaper then the original. It was supper easy to do and only took a couple of hours. I used beading wire instead of the thread, but just because I couldn't find the thread in the color I wanted. I love taking things that I have seen in the stores or magazines and making them myself.
