Retired - Gemstone Oasis Wrap Bracelet

PROJECT B3091
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Intermediate
With gorgeous hues of milky white and pale aqua, this wrap bracelet featuring Peruvian opal gemstone beads, a tassel and a charm looks straight out of the boutique.
Instructions
The Opelon stretch fiber in this double wrap bracelet measures 15 inches. To change the size of your bracelet, simply adjust the length.
  1. Begin by cutting a 17 inch length of Opelon stretch fiber using your scissors. (Your bracelet will measure 15" but I have included 2 inches in the total length to allow for knotting)
  2. Attach a bead stopper at the 2" mark from one end of your stretch fiber and begin stringing on your strand of blue Peruvian Opal beads.
  3. Once all the beads are on, remove your bead stopper and tie an overhand knot. Tie another knot on top of that one. Snip off any excess stretch fiber using your scissors.
  4. Next, watch the video on How to Make Tassels for Jewelry and How to Add a Cone to A Tassel.
  5. Following what you learned in the video, create your tassel using white S-lon cord.
  6. Next, cut a 1 foot length of wire, add it to your tassel like in the video, slide your bead cone on and create a wrapped wire loop using your round nose pliers. Snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  7. Using your chain nose pliers, open a gold plated jump ring and attach it onto the stretch fiber (anywhere you like). Before closing, also slide on the wrapped wire loop from your tassel and close.
  8. Open up another jump ring and slide on the loop from your elephant charm. Attach it onto that original jump ring and close.
  9. You're done!
