One of the reasons for the popularity of name bracelets is the wide variety of letter beads available with which to make them. Whether you want to spell out your own name or that of a loved one or friend, you can find letters in enough shapes, sizes, and colors to make your head spin.

My favorite way to create unique name bracelets is to use beads of varying colors and shapes in one bracelet. I alternate silver beads with gold or alternate black beads with white for an eye-catching, contrasting effect. You are creating something of your own, so why not do it in your own unique way?

Letter Beads Let You Spell Out Your Feelings

Who says you need to stick to names when creating a bracelet? I love to make bracelets with single words spelled out. I choose the color of my beads depending on the word. When creating a bracelet around the word "love," I use red or pink letter beads, sometimes using white beads to alternate between the colors. I then use complementary colored, silver, or gold beads to fill out the rest of the bracelet.

For a recent bracelet I made around the word "dream," I used light blue, lavender, and white letters. I also used blue and lavender cats eye beads to add to the dreamy effect. With a little bit of imagination and creativity, letter beads can be used in all kinds of beautiful and imaginative ways. The only limitations are the ones you put on yourself.
