Make a Beaded Bracelet Project: Illusion and Cat’s Eye Beaded Bracelet

You know, the combo blue and green is in again and staying that way I hope. I love it. But it goes without saying that you can easily make this multi strand bracelet with any color bead you want. These are very playful on the wrist, which makes them a favorite.
