On one of my pining sprees last week, I found this great tutorial for a braided bead necklace and immediately went to gather my materials. I found a small bead store near my house and was able to get everything I needed, plus a few extra. About an hour and a half later, this is what I had accomplished.
This beaded braid is the perfect summer necklace. Sorry this picture doesn't give you the best idea of the color, but it is a bright coral color which is the perfect addition to the already bright summer colors of most people's wardrobe. Come to think of it, coral may be the color of my summer, I seem to be making and buying everything in that color. I smell a color crush roundup coming.
