"Peace Prayer" Bracelet with Card Kit
I have gotten many compliments on these bracelets, and they have been made for less than a day. However, they were AWFUL to make! The written instructions are pretty much, "follow the picture." The issue with the picture is that there is NO key. Just circles of different colors. Not only that, but it has you start in the middle of the bracelet! As a rule, we tie off one end of the string before we start so beads don't fly everywhere. Halfway through, many had to restart because there wasn't enough difference between the black and the purple. I thought that following the prayer (which was also highly praised) would be better. If you followed the prayer, there was NO WAY to know when to add the spacer beads. All in all, it was pretty, but we would NEVER make this again unless someone fixed the instructions.

"Peace Prayer" Bracelet
Nice idea, but the assembly instructions had a couple of errors when comparing to the prayer description. These bracelets are sized extremely small. I had to add several beads and a fastener to make them big enough for my slender early-teen granddaughters to wear. The jump rings have to be closed or they will slip off, so you do need a pliers to assemble. The colors of the beads were a challenge to distinguish correctly under lamp light because of the dark colors.
