Retired - Forest Clearing Bracelet

PROJECT B7028
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
TierraCast leaf, bee and ladybug charms dangle from a length of green Regaliz cork cord in this spring bracelet, calling to mind a forest abuzz with life.
Instructions
These instructions make a 6 1/2 inch bracelet. For a longer or shorter bracelet, adjust the number of inches of cork cord you purchase.
  1. For reference, begin by watching our video on how to measure and assemble a Regaliz flat cork cord bracelet.
  2. Take your 6 inch length of Regaliz flat cork cord and center the TierraCast two-hole leaf pendant at the midpoint of the cord. Mark each hole on the cork with a pen.
  3. Set the BeadSmith rotating leather hole punch tool to 2mm. Punch holes at each of the two marks you just made.
  4. Take two compression rivets and slide them through the holes of the cork and the pendant. Place the bracelet on your bench block and rivet the pendant in place using the rivet setting tool and a chasing hammer.
  5. Place the bracelet against a ruler and mark the cork with a pen at the 1/2 inch, 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch and 2 inch marks. Turn the bracelet around and do the same on the other side of the focal pendant.
  6. Punch 2mm holes at all eight marks.
  7. Place an eyelet into one of the holes and set it using the TierraCast eyelet setting tool. Repeat this step seven more times so all eight holes have eyelets in them.
  8. Using your pliers, open a jump ring and slide it through the first eyelet hole. Also slide on the loop of a TierraCast leaf charm. Close the jump ring.
  9. Repeat step 8 seven more times, attaching five more leaf charms, a bee charm and a ladybug charm to the eyelet holes of the bracelet. You can look at the photo for reference, or place the charms in any order you like.
  10. Take one cord end and place a few drops of Super New Glue into the well. Place one end of the cork cord into the cord end. Repeat this step on the other side of the bracelet. Wait 15 minutes for the glue to thoroughly dry.
  11. Open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop of one cord end and also slide on the loop of your clasp. Close the jump ring.
  12. Open another jump ring. Slide it through the loop of the other cord end. Close the jump ring.
  13. Enjoy your bracelet!
