Retired - Regaliz Dragonfly Two-tone Bracelet

PROJECT B2044
Designer: Kat Silvia
Skill Level: Beginner
I love that I can add my favorite charms to my Regaliz Corduroy Bracelets with this easy charm holder connector bar. In this design I used two different colors of cord for a fun two-tone look.
Instructions
These instructions make a 7.5" bracelet. The quantities given include enough corduroy rubber to allow for an up to 8" bracelet. If you would like to make a larger bracelet, adjust the quantity accordingly. Please also note that you will need a ruler for this project. Before you begin, it may be helpful for you to watch our video: How to Measure and Assemble a Regaliz Corduroy Rubber Bracelet. In this video, you will learn how to measure and cut the corduroy rubber, add the beads, attach the clasp, and finish the bracelet.
  1. To make this bracelet please watch our video: How use the Charm Holder Connector for Rubber Regaliz.
  2. The center of the connector bar measures 7mm (just over 1/4"). You will need to subtract this from your overall length of your bracelet. Also the recesses of the clasp measure 5mm at each end for a total of 10mm (3/8").
  3. For a 7 1/2" bracelet, cut each piece of rubber to 3 3/4". Make sure both cords are exactly even and your cuts are perpendicular other wise it will not sit correctly.
  4. Open one jump ring and attach the dragonfly charm to the charm holder connector bar.
  5. Before you glue anything, test your length. Place one end of the rubber on to the bar, then slide on one slider bead and one rubber o-ring. Repeat with the other side.
  6. Place both ends into the clasp ends. You can carefully measure this on a mandrel or your wrist. If you need to cut any rubber, do so now evenly on both sides.
  7. Once you have your desired size, carefully remove the clasp and slide back your beads and o-rings. As demonstrated in the video, place a dab of super new glue into the recess of the cord and place one end of the rubber cord onto the connector bar. Repeat with the other side.
  8. Slide your beads and rubber o-rings back into place.
  9. Place a dab of super new glue into the recess on one side of your clasp and slip one end of the cord into the recess. Allow to dry.
  10. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your bracelet.
  11. Allow all glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
