Black and Gold Bracelet

Thanks to Blueberry Cove Beads for providing the supplies for this post. All opinions are my own.

Black and Gold Beaded Bracelet

Hey there, jewelry lovers! Last month, I shared with you about a fun new subscription service I’ve been trying out, Blueberry Cove Beads. Each month, subscribers receive a themed box full of beads, charms, and other accessories you can use in any way you like to create your own one-of-a-kind jewelry projects! The first theme was Boho, and I absolutely loved it. In no time, I created five different pieces using things from my box. This month proved to be a bit more of a challenge. First of all, the box came right before I left for Haven Conference. Then, we had our family vacation, where I got an ear infection and my computer was hacked. After I got home, it was Little Crafter’s birthday, my mom’s birthday, and Erin’s baby shower! Whew! Now that things are finally settling down, I pulled out my box again to see what I could create. This month’s theme was Oriental, and here is a look at what was inside:


There was definitely a huge variety and lots of pretty things, but honestly I struggled at first because my personal style is about as far from Oriental as it gets. My home decor is best described as Farmhouse French Style with a touch of Coastal, and my clothing these days is either fit and flare dresses or graphic tees. I’m pretty sure the only Oriental thing in my home is a pair of chopsticks and some frozen P.F. Chang’s rice. 

I enjoyed the challenge of creating something with materials I wouldn’t normally buy, though, because it stretches my creativity…and otherwise all my jewelry would look the same! Here is the bracelet I put together.

This particular bracelet requires no special skills or materials; anyone can do it!

– 6mm Round Black Glass Beads {24}
– 6mm Decorative Gold Spacers {8}
– Clear Stringing Elastic
– Scissors

Beaded Bracelet Black and Gold

All you have to do is string your beads onto the elastic in any pattern you like. I chose to do three black beads followed by a gold spacer, and repeated that pattern eight times. Then, tie the elastic tightly and trim your ends. If you like, you can add a dab of super glue to the knot to make sure it doesn’t come undone.

I’m loving my new bracelet; it’s elegant and goes with just about any outfit! I will be sure to share whatever pieces I make using the other supplies from my box too.
