Children may not be able to handle bracelet clasps so there are two options - make elasticated or memory wire bracelets.

I think Barb did well to use memory wire for her design which was to be a gift for a young girl. Memory wire will not break like elastic.

The selection of  beads come from Debbie's (my friend and co-instructor). As you can see from the off white beads, she is a strong proponent of UV sensitive beads. These turn color when exposed to strong sunlight. A good reminder for children to either come in or slap on more sun screen!

Beader design #: 630
