In my last post I highlighted beads I had been working on using plain, white polymer and Prismacolor pencils, my "pencil box beads". This time I have a simple, easy-peasy bracelet that were made from one shape of my pencil box beads. They are simple forms and simple colors but I punched it up a little with bronze guilders paste to go with the copper spacer beads. I usually pierce the beads before curing so that I have a small channel for my drill bit to follow if I need a larger diameter whole. All these beads (except one) were drilled the same size so I could get my 2mm buna cord through; one bead was drilled large enough so that I could tie an overhand knot, apply superglue and slide it inside the bead with the larger whole. The copper beads hide the larger hole and the glue assured it will stay together. My granddaughter says these beads remind her of an old wooden top; they do have that look of antiquity about them. I will be listing these on etsy in the next few days, look for them there!
