When you open your email and begin reading this month's Simply Beads update, I will be sailing the high seas with my family on a much-deserved cruise vacation! After enduring months of an entire-home renovation, we needed a getaway. The anticipation of this cruise vacation is what led to my inspiration for the Free Jewelry-Making Project for this month's update. I wanted to make some cute jewelry for my daughters that they could wear with their new clothes for our vacation. Knowing that we will be lounging poolside and swimming in the ocean, I wanted the jewelry to be carefree and easy to wear. Finding the anchor beads in my stash was a happy surprise that seemed just too good to be true. When my daughters saw what I was creating they asked if they could help. I was more than happy to have some extra hands to help with the stringing. These bracelets are both quick and easy to make. Read on for a few tips on making simple, stretchy, easy-to-wear jewelry.
