Heart of the Caribbean Bangle Bracelet

During the fall and winter months, I find myself day dreaming of a white sandy beach somewhere in the Caribbean. The U.S. Virgin Islands offers some of the most amazing snorkeling and scuba diving adventures. I created this Heart of the Caribbean bracelet, inspired by the endless snorkeling trails surrounding Buck Island in St. Croix.

Make your own Heart of the Caribbean Bracelet in about 45 minutes, by using the following Blue Moon Beads:

Supplies &Tools:
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Flush cut/wire cutters
  • 18 inch glass bead necklace
  • Assorted bead mix - turquoise & black
  • Glass heart bead
  • Jump rings - oval and round sizes
  • Metal head pins & eye pins
  • Bangle Bracelet
  • Crimp Bead
  • 30 gauge wire
Start by attaching the 18 inch glass bead necklace to a length that fits the bangle bracelet. You will use the crimp bead to secure the beads on the strand, then fasten it to the bangle bracelet with 30 gauge wire. Start to wrap the second layer of beads around the bangle bracelet until you cover the entire bracelet. Use jump rings and head pins to attach the remaining beads to the bracelet.


  1. This is all kinds of stunning! I love the combination of beads you used for this project! I have a link party every Friday and would love for you to share this.
