Instructions

The bracelets in this design measure approximately 7 inches. To modify the size, simply adjust the number of beads strung.
  1. Begin by cutting off 12 inches of stretch cord. Place a Bead Bug bead stopper about 3 inches from one end.
  2. Thread the other end through a Big Eye Needle.
  3. Then string on one red pearl, followed by one red crystal. Continue to alternate until you have added a total of 16 pearls and 16 crystals.
  4. Remove the bead stopper, then tie an overhand knot. Add a dab of GS Hypo Cement to the knot and then tie another knot. Thread the end with the needle on it though the adjacent bead, pulling the glued knot into the center of the bead. This will help hide it and allow the glue to adhere to the bead for added security. Allow to dry before trimming the ends.
  5. Repeat the above process to create the green bracelet and the white bracelet.
