Retired - Skully Bracelet

PROJECT B3004
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Make this fun Halloween-inspired bracelet in a few simple steps by incorporating multicolored flat skull beads and neon Czech glass party beads. This is a simple project but it stands out!
Instructions
Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Stretch Bracelet.
  1. Begin by cutting a 12" length of white .7mm Opelon stretch cord with your scissors.
  2. Your bracelet will measure approximately 7� long, with those additional 5� used for knotting.
  3. Place a bead stopper a couple of inches from the end of your cord.
  4. Look through your skull bead mix and pick out 6 colors. I picked purple, orange, green, yellow, pink, and blue. You will be using your 6 neon party beads as accent beads.
  5. String in order: 1 purple skull bead, 1 green bead, 1 orange skull bead, 1 purple bead, 1 green skull bead, 1 orange bead, 1 yellow skull bead, 1 green bead, 1 pink skull bead, 1 purple bead, 1 blue skull bead and 1 orange bead.
  6. Remove the bead stopper and tie the ends of your cord into a knot.
  7. 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.
  8. Allow the glue to dry thoroughly for 24 hours before wearing.
