"I have been making these personalized name bracelets for nearly ten years. I love giving them as gifts to new moms, and they have been wildly popular with my friends. I have made many different versions of this basic bracelet over the years for Mother's Day and birthday presents since it is so easy to customize it with different beads or use a different pattern. I have found that friends really love being involved in the design of these bracelets.
When asked to write this tutorial, I realized I had never made a bracelet for myself! I was excited to finally create this two-strand bracelet with my daughter's names, Emma and Alison. I always incorporate the children's birthstones in the bracelet, either by including crystals in birthstone colors in the strand, or by dangling crystals by the clasp. Here I've used emerald and aquamarine colored crystals for my March and May babies.
This name bracelet offers endless possibilities. One strand, two strand, even three-strand; pearls, Bali beads, crystals - I think I've made them all! You will love customizing your design to your unique style. I hope you enjoy making them as much as I have."
