Retired - Sorrento Bracelet

PROJECT B685
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Beginner
Inspired by the Mediterranean cities along the Italian coast, this stretch bracelet features a resort color palette and a sophisticated modern design.
Instructions
Tip: Before you tie your knots, see if the bracelet will fit comfortably around your wrist. If not, add some more party beads, this project kit comes with enough to add several inches to your bracelet's circumference.
  1. Before beginning this project, please watch the video tutorial: How to Make a Stretch Bracelet.
  2. Cut two lengths of Opelon stretch cord, 14 inches long each.
  3. Place a bead stopper on one length of Opelon cord, 3 inches from the end.
  4. String onto your cord: 2 neon orange 6mm Czech Glass party beads, 1 Tierracst 2-hole hourglass strand spacer, 1 party bead, 1 strand spacer, 1 party bead, 1 strand spacer, 1 party bead, 1 strand spacer, 1 party bead, 1 strand spacer, 3 party beads, 1 strand spacer, 3 party beads, 1 strand spacer, 3 party beads, 1 strand spacer, 3 party beads, 1 strand spacer, 3 party beads, 1 strand spacer, and 1 more party bead. Place a bead stopper on the end.
  5. Repeat the previous 2 steps, completing the other side of your bracelet, stringing your party beads through the second hole in all your strand spacers.
  6. On one of your strands of strung Opelon, remove the bead stoppers from both ends, cross the ends and tie a knot. Follow the instructions in the video for tying a secure knot with stretch cord. Add a little GS HypoCement to secure the knot and trim the ends. Pull the elastic a bit so that the knot hides inside a bead.
  7. Repeat the above step with your other strung strand of Opelon.
  8. Great Job! All done.
