Retired - Pyramid Bead Stretch Bracelet Set

PROJECT B1115
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Fun and funky pyramid shaped two hole Czech glass beads make this pair of stretch bracelets bold and eye-catching.
Instructions
These bracelets measure approximately 6.5" when not stretched. To adjust the finished size, add or subtract from the number of seed beads that go between each pair of pyramid beads.
  1. Cut four one foot long pieces of Opelon stretch cord. Place the ends of two pieces into a bead stopper.
  2. String five seed beads onto each cord, then string a black pyramid bead onto both cords. Repeat seven more times.
  3. Remove one cord end from the bead stopper. Make sure your bracelet isn't twisted and tie this cord end to the other end of the same cord. Tie the cord snug, but don't pull too tight. Place a dab of GS Hypo cement on the knot and tie again. Allow the glue to dry for a couple of minutes and then trim the cord tails about 1/8" from the knot.
  4. Remove the other cord end from the bead stopper and tie the second cord as you did the first.
  5. Slide the knots into the closest pyramid bead to hide them.
  6. Repeat these instructions with the green pyramid beads to create your second bracelet.
  7. Allow all of the glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
