DIY Wrapped Seed Bead Bracelet from LYSM Design here. In a previous post she bought a pack of bangles and cut them then bent them into various shapes. To see what she’s created with them go to the link and see her past posts. *There isn’t much of a tutorial for these bracelets but you could take a cheap bangle and wrap strung seed beads around it - look in the comment section for how she sewed the rows of beads together on the red one (not hard).
DIY Easy Braided Satin Cord Beaded Necklace Tutorial from LYSM Design here. She uses ribbon as the closure so you don’t need any special jewelry findings. *I translated the site automatically using Chrome. I’ve left a comment on her blog asking if she might install a google translator box on her blog (like I have on mine) because I post a lot of her DIYs.
