Pink Roses and Pearls

Every so often, I feel like making some jewelry. . .
usually after walking through the bead section of a craft store:)

Last Friday night on date night, my hubby and I took a swing through Michaels.
They had a sale on beads, so I had to pick some up.

I just fell in love with these pink roses. 
I figured what goes better with pink roses than pearls?

So I picked up some of both and took them home.

Here's what I used for this project:
Stretch Magic elastic string 0.5mm
pink roses
ring blank
E-6000 glue

I put one pearl between each of the three roses,
 then strung several more around the back of the bracelet.

On the back of the package, there are instructions for how to tie off the string.
It's basically two square knots.
Tip: to make the bracelet extra sturdy, I used two strands of the elastic string.

I had one rose left over, so I made a ring.
I used some E-6000 glue to adhere the rose bead to a ring blank.
Then I let it sit for 24 hours.

I think they turned out pretty and girl-y.
I don't get enough pink around my house, so I really like this set!

I hope you all have a delightful weekend!
Thanks so much for stopping by and God bless.

I will delight myself in Your statutes;
 I will not forget Your word.
Psalm 119:16
