Bubble gum bracelet

I'm more into accessorizing my outfits these days than I have been in the past, so I made myself a bracelet to go with my Easter outfit. I have a couple of containers of beads out on the floor of my craft room/office and I kept seeing these colorful beads. They kept just screaming at me to be made into something to go with my Easter outfit since they matched so well.

And no, it's not made of bubble gum, but these ceramic beads remind me of bubble gum. This was a really quick project. Simply attach beading string to one half of a toggle clasp with a crimp, string on beads and spacers, and attach the end to the other half of the toggle clasp with a crimp. I used white glass beads, ceramic colored beads, silver spacers, and some plastic berry beads that have been in my stash since my days of ornament making (10 years ago!). All of the beads came from Michael's and the spacers came from Joann's.
