Retired - Indigo Stretch Bracelet Set

PROJECT B3028
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
By using Miyuki cube beads in Metallic Teal Iris, Metallic Dusty Rose, Amethyst, Cranberry Gold Luster, and Dark Topaz Medley, you can create a harmonious color scheme for this simple stretch bracelet set.
Instructions
These bracelets measure approximately 7.5" when not stretched. To adjust the finished size, make your stretch cord shorter or longer.
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How To Make a Stretch Bracelet. This video will show you how to make a stretch bracelet and connect the ends of your bracelet and finish off the cords.
  2. Begin by cutting ten 10� lengths of Opelon floss stretch cord with your scissors.
  3. Take your first length of cord and place a bead stopper a couple of inches from the end.
  4. You will now begin stringing on your Miyuki cubes onto each bracelet one by one. You will make 10 bracelets for this set.
  5. Begin by adding cube beads in Montana Blue onto your first cord length. Once you have strung beads onto about 7.5� of your cord, remove the bead stopper. Tie the ends of your stretch cord into a square (double) knot, pulling the cord tight to make sure there is no extra space between the beads. Set aside.
  6. Now repeat this process and make the following bracelets with the rest of your cord lengths: one more bracelet in Montana Blue, 2 in Metallic Teal Iris, 2 in Amethyst, 2 in Cranberry Gold Luster, 1 in Metallic Dusty Rose, and 1 in Dark Topaz Medley. (Tip: I removed all of the brown Miyuki cubes from the Dark Topaz Medley. You do not need to, but I felt like the color did not work with the rest of the color scheme.)
  7. Once all your stretch bracelets are done, apply a very small amount of GS Hypo Cement to the knots and allow to dry. Then, with your flush cutters, trim the loose ends close to the knot.
  8. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly for 24 hours before wearing.
