Mermaid Shore Bracelet

PROJECT B2357
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Intermediate
This island inspired bracelet features three beautiful sea glass beads with a natural cork textile.
Instructions
This bracelet measures approximately 6.5 inches. To modify the length, simply adjust the length of cork respectively. You will also need a scrap of wire or a toothpick for this project.
  1. Cut a length of beading wire, 8 inches in length. String on one crimp tube, thread it up and over the wire protector, add one loop of the end cap and string the wire back through the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube with the magical crimping pliers.
  2. String on one light aqua bead, one silver bead, one purple bead, one silver bead, and one opaque seafoam bead.
  3. Next, string on one crimp tube, thread it up and over the wire protector, add one loop of the end cap and string the wire back through the crimp tube. Crimp the crimp tube with the magical crimping pliers.
  4. Cut the cork into two equal lengths of 2 inches each.
  5. Using a scrap of wire or a toothpick, add a dab of glue to the magnetic clasp and slide it on to the cork cord. Repeat on the other side.
  6. Add a dab of glue to the end cap and slide it on to the cork. Repeat on the other side. Note: To get the curve around the wrist make sure that both end caps have their loops facing the right way to go with the natural curve of the cork.
  7. We recommend waiting at least 24 hours before wearing to allow the glue to fully set. Also be sure to let the clasp dry unclasped so that it does not stick together.
