Horseshoe Charms St. Patrick’s Day Bracelet

$30.00

There are so many cool and neat accessories for St. Patrick’s Day. Some are bright and blinky, others are flashy and fabulous, but there is one constant: everyone needs one. Working with 2-strand beads opens up a lot of possibilities. The main beads, the 19x14mm sliders, are four-hole beads, or 2-strand beads. In this bracelet I used the 2-strands to add 6mm Kelly green faceted beads. The facets make those beads look deceptively like disco balls. Added to the mix is a cluster of St. Patrick’s Day charms: a horseshoe, a leprechaun, and a clover. This St. Patrick’s Day 2-Strand bracelet is made of stretch thread that is .7mm in diameter.

Before I designed this bracelet, I took some time to read about the traditions of St. Patrick’s Day. Parades are popular and in the New York City Parade nearly 3 million people walk 1.5 miles taking almost five hours. Chicago still dyes the Chicago River green every year. They use 40 pounds of green vegetable dye, which turns the river green for several hours.

Description

Horseshoe Charms St. Patrick’s Day Bracelet

This Horseshoe charms St. Patrick’s Day bracelet is one of my favorite types of bracelets to design. I love to work with 2-strand, or 4-hole, beads. The main slider beads have four holes through which two different strands of thread are run. Once I’ve picked the number of slider beads, I design single beads in two rows in between each slider bead. This isn’t always easy, since the size of the beads have to match exactly to the space between the sliders and the width of the sliders. The result of this Horseshoe Charms St. Patrick’s Day Bracelet are patterned sliders and beautiful faceted Kelly-green beads.

The beads on this beautiful bracelet beads are delicately beaded on memory wire. This beautiful bracelet will never lose its shape. To maintain the brand-new look, it is best to keep it out of water for extended lengths of time. One size fits most wrists.

Everything in The Purple Pachyderm Jewelry Shop is custom made, handmade, and a one-of-a-kind original design. Outside of custom orders, no two bracelets will ever be the same. Designing and executing a design can be a long process and take hours, sometimes days, to finish. Our designers use every minute of that time creating something fantastically original with a unique twist. The price of our work is determined by the cost of materials and the hours of labor.

The bracelet was about 7 inches before it was finished and tied. I use a stretch thread that is .7mm in diameter and very sturdy. The thread is stretched before and after beading to extend the life of the thread and improve flexibility. It is also closed with three square knots for longevity and finished with a drop of super glue for maximum security. It’s not recommended that the thread be exposed to water for long periods of time. I recommend rolling the bracelet on and off instead of stretching it wide to pass over your knuckles. Stretch thread is an elastic like any other. The more you tug and pull and stretch, the quicker it will lose its elasticity. If you take good care of your bracelet, you’ll enjoy it for years and years. As with any other questions, you can email them to me at purplepachyshop@gmail.com.
