Retired - Little Birdhouse Stretch Bracelet

PROJECT B1027
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Beginner
Cute lampwork glass birdhouse beads adorn this quick and easy colorful stretch bracelet.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Stretch Bracelet.
  2. Begin by cutting a 12" length of white .7mm Opelon stretch cord.
  3. Place a bead stopper a couple of inches from the end of your cord.
  4. String an opaque white 8mm round Czech glass druk bead, a siam ruby 8mm round Czech glass druk bead, and a lampwork glass birdhouse bead onto your cord. Repeat the pattern five more times.
  5. Remove the bead stopper and tie the ends of your cord into a knot. Apply a very small amount of GS Hypo Cement to the knot and allow to dry. Then, trim the loose ends close to the knot and slide the knot inside the closest birdhouse bead.
  6. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly for 24 hours before wearing.
