Summit Bracelet Tutorial

Imagine the top of a giant mountain that has been covered by freshly fallen snow; that is exactly what Allie did when she decided to make her Summit Bracelet based on this breathtaking landscape. As a basic beading project, the only required materials are 1-Hole Halo Beads, Melon Beads, Potomac Crystal Rondelle Beads, and some Miyuki Seed Beads. However, use your imagination to envision beads of your choice in a 6mm and 8mm size as a replacement for the Melon Beads if you desire. With these variables that can be changed, many versions of the bracelet are ready to be created at your fingertips!
