Chunky Beaded Jewelry

I just love all the cute chunky beaded jewelry I see in all the stores. For a while I've been collecting various big beads so I can make my own.

I found some cute chunky pearls at (where else?) Hobby Lobby, and lots of other beads in fun colors at the thrift store. (Ugly jewelry cut apart = new beads for me!!)
So, My collection of beads, + some stretch magic jewelry elastic + ten minutes . . .
=Fun new bracelets for me! And super cheap might I add! I've still got plenty more beads, so one day there will be a whole family of chunky beaded jewelry!
Yay!! I just love new accessories!

Last year I bought a ton of beading stuff w/high hopes. But only made a pair or 2 of earrings and figured I just stay with my paints.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Love the bracelets! And although I shop plenty at thrift stores for some reason I just never thought of looking at the cheesy jewelry. Thanks for the idea. BTW, stopping by from New Friend Friday @ The Girl Creative.
Off to check out more of your posts. :)
