Lucite and pearl spring bracelet

Make a lovely wrist corsage with Lucite flowers and pearls

You may not be headed to the prom, but you can still adorn your wrist with fanciful flowers — and these won’t wilt! When designing this bracelet, lay out your flower units along the chain before attaching them to find a pleasing arrangement. Add in leaves, then snap a quick photo for reference if you like. Space the colors for balance, and attach flowers and leaves to both sides of the links for even distribution and movement.
