Today’s DIY project is my wonderful cluster of abundance bracelet! Sometimes, as the daily activities of life go on, you forget how blessed you are to be alive and all the marvelous things that happen to you in life. You forget how lucky you are to have a roof over your head, a loving family, kids that brings endless joy to your heart and all the other good stuff that go under the radar as you chase bigger dreams. Since this month marks the middle of the year and makes a great time for reflection, I decided to make a gorgeous bracelet that holds together all the awesome things I am grateful for. For everything that happens, it goes into my bucket of abundance hence the name, Cluster of Abundance.
As you make this piece for yourself or loved one, let it serve as a reminder of how lucky you are. Now let’s get started!

(Project makes a 7.5 inch bracelet.)

For this project you will need, 
Pliers (1 Round nose & 1 Flat nose)
Snipper tool or wire cutter
Headpins (6)
Stretchy cord
Glue (recommend quick drying glue)

-Repeat steps to make a total of 8 units for the 6mm beads and a total of 2 units for the 4mm beads.

Step 4: Tuck the knot neatly into the hole of the tube bead to have a clean and professional looking bracelet.
Tip: To make hiding the knot easier, pass a gold tube 1st instead of a gold bead in step 3.
