DIY Jewelry: Solar System Planets Bracelet from eCrafty.com!
How cute is this? Becky was inspired by our new Rainbow Resin beads in Crazy Quilt and Tie Dye Swirl patterns (our SKUs 1307A, 1307B) to make a bracelet based on the solar system. She used our 1508E Sun Charms for... the sun! She used the pnuemonic "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Noodles" to correctly order Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune ~ each with their own beady personality! (Pluto is no longer considered a planet but we still are going to give it a shout out.) If you look VERY closely, right next to Earth, you will see Becky even included the moon - a 4mm 1/6" e-bead from our eBead mixes.
This could be made on stretch cord for classes or youth groups. Becky used tiger tail (coated steel wire), some simple crimp beads (squish to hold your bead in place), and a few assorted bead mixtures of ours listed below.
