UTEE Charm Bracelet

This charm bracelet is made from clear UTEE.

I used a few strips of Glenda's paper designs rolled around a cocktail stick. This I dipped and coated with the clear UTEE. I then wrapped wire around the UTEE bead and dipped again. The only thing you have to be careful of, is dipping too much. Wire wrapped beads have a habit of growing too big.

The bead above has a glass pearl inside, dipped and wrapped in wire then dipped again.

I love this manuscript design, the UTEE magnifies the paper and it looks really effective. Some of the beads were dipped once and then quickly dipped in bedazzles, then dipped again, this seals in your embellishments.

Once you have all your beads made, you can add them to your chain and attach a nice fastening. I like to top the bead with a bead cap.
