So I am still exhausted from yesterday's travel, but it's time to rejoice. All three kids are back to school this am! Hallelujah! I am headed out the door for a short peaceful run, then hoping to get some pieces poly'd while the laundry is going and the little guy is playing after school.
Anyways, today's post....When Geo and I stop in at Jo Ann's, you never know how many supplies for projects will end up in our cart . (Did you read yesterday's post about her? If not, it's here.) We ran in there quickly searching for Flea Market Style. I am still searching for the latest edition. Boo hoo, they didn't have it.
But we did come up with some cute and super easy summer (or Florida anytime) bling.
While quickly glancing over the beads (something Geo does every time we stop there). We spotted this new multicolored, flowered, glass beaded chain. It matched perfectly with the bright green and white tie dye tank I was wearing. It wasn't on sale but luckily, I have the Jo Ann app on my phone, so instant 40% off coupon available. And a fun larger tropical clasp to match. The clasps came in a two pack, so it was meant to be, new bling for each of us!
The chain wrapped about 1 1/2 times around my wrist as purchased. With a large clasp found, Geo would have the chain needed to complete our bling.

Here's what I needed from all those supplies
If you don't have access to a beading supply, a pack of jump rings, a charm, and a pair of needle nose pliers from your toolbox is all the extras you need.
I added one oval jump ring to one side of the chain and then the decorative end of the clasp. To the other end of the chain, I added the necessary number of jump rings to get a perfect fit on my wrist for a double wrap bracelet, which ended up being three. I added the charm into the jump ring closest to the bead chain. I hooked on the other end of the clasp to the third jump ring. Done. Finished. Instant Florida bling.
Now it just needs to return to warm weather so I can wear it again.
