Pip, Pip, Hooray! is part of our modular collection with dramatic braided focal pieces paired with swappable back straps. The front of the Pip, Pip, Hooray! features shimmering, color-shifting Czech glass pip beads. The pip's unique flower petal shape gives the braid a fun texture and silky drape. The back strap features comfortable size 8 seed beads braided into a beaded rope. The front and back are connected with super strong magnetic endcaps and the joins are hidden under color-coordinated peyote stitch endcap covers.
