Eye pins and chain links connect the three strands of this totally ornate beaded bracelet. Being the copperholic that I am, I immediately fell in love with these beautiful scroll work beads as soon as I saw them. Very light in weight, they float across your wrist yet have a very substantial, heavy appearance. This simple project can be completed in an hour.
