While perusing the new arrivals section at DANNIJO today, I stumbled upon a few more pieces that incorporate snake beads. (Thank you to Erin at Thanks I Made It) for cluing me into what those lovely chevron shaped beads are when I wrote about the Isabel Marant bracelet here.)
I love these bracelets. DANNIJO sells them for $80, which isn’t expensive for a DANNIJO piece, but you could easily make them for $10 – $15. (The problem is that you really want to pile on 2-3 of these, so you’d end up spending $240… no way!)
I also adore this necklace. It’s actually not one necklace, but six strands, layered together. Awesome, but DANNIJO sells ’em for $170 a pop. Same problem as above. If you want to pile on three, that will set you back a cool $510.
I ordered a whole bunch of snake beads today – to make these and the Isabel Marant bracelet… so you can expect a tutorial in the coming weeks. In the meantime, if you are looking for snake beads, I recommend buying from FishLips. One 22-28 inch strand is $14.95.
Have you experimented with snake beads before? What did you make?
