Make 3 absolutely beautiful stretch bracelets with this one project kit!
TIP: Before you tie a knot completing a bracelet, place the strung beads around your wrist to make sure they fit comfortably - add or subtract beads if need be for a good fit.
- To start this project, please watch the video: How to Make a Stretch Bracelet.
- With the ingredients in this kit, you can make 3 stretch bracelets. For each bracelet, start by cutting a 14 inch length of stretch magic and placing a bead stopper 3 inches from one end. Place a big eye needle on the other end and string your beads in a pleasing fashion. When done, tie a knot and apply some GS Hypo Cement to it as seen in the video.
- Here are the sequences of beads used in the bracelets pictured:
- Bracelet Pattern 1: String 1 acrylic rectangle gem shaped bead and 1 Preciosa Czech Crystal 6mm bicone bead in jet hematite. Repeat this sequence 6 more times. Now add another 3 to 6 jet hematite bicones depending upon your wrist size. Test the strung beads on your wrist before tying the knot.
- Bracelet Pattern 2: String 1 acrylic rectangle gem shaped bead and 1 Preciosa Czech crystal 6mm bicone bead in jet hematite. Repeat this sequence 4 more times. Now add an acrylic square faceted chicklet bead and a jet hematite bicone bead , another chicklet bead and hematite bicone, and finally 1 more chicklet bead and bicone. Knot the ends and finish the bracelet.
- Bracelet Pattern 3: String 1 acrylic square chicklet bead and 1 Preciosa Czech Crystal 6mm bicone bead in jet hematite. Repeat this sequence 6 more times and then tie your ends and complete your bracelet.
