July - Daisy Chain on Steroids

It's summer and time to smell the daisies. Well, maybe bead them. This month we will do a simple daisy chain but we are going to inject a little excitement. You should be able to finish this bracelet before you leave the July meeting. This is a fun, quick project specially designed just for our members. You can use this pattern to make either a bracelet or necklace. Supplies as listed are for a bracelet. A necklace will require additional materials. Hope to see you at "Early Bird Beading"!Questions?
