Apple Charm Beaded Ribbon Bracelet with Mini Bowdabra Bow

I have an apple charm that I just knew would look adorable on a bracelet. Apples are perfect for back-to-school and to celebrate fall. Add apple accents and coordinating colored beads to ribbon for a beautiful piece of jewelry. I finished my apple charm beaded ribbon bracelet with an adorable Mini Bowdabra ribbon bow.
