Retired - Spring Bling Bracelet

PROJECT B5005
Designer: Tracy Gonzales
Skill Level: Intermediate
This cute bracelet is made out of light blue Regaliz Cork Cord, a great leather alternative. TierraCast glue in rivetables are paired with sparkling crystal flatbacks to add a bit of bling.
Instructions
These instructions will make a finished bracelet that measures approximately 7.5". The materials included will make up to an 8" bracelet, but if you would like to make a bracelet that is larger than 8", please adjust the amount of cork cord accordingly.
  1. Decide on your finished bracelet length, and add 3/4". This is the length you will need to cut your cork cord to.
  2. Thread the end of the cord through the closed opening on the floral z-hook and fold over the last 5/8".
  3. Set the hole punch for a 2mm hole. Use the punch to make a hole through both folded layers of cork about 1/2" from the folded edge.
  4. Place the bottom of a rivet up through the bottom of the holes and snap the top of the rivet on.
  5. Place the rivet onto a bench block and use the rivet setting tool to set it.
  6. Fold back 5/8" on the free end of your cord and repeat the process to attach a rivet to this side 1/2" from the folded end.
  7. Lay your bracelet out flat and mark the placement for each of the 5 glue in rivetables with a pencil.
  8. Punch holes at the marks and rivet the glue in settings as shown in this video.
  9. Apply some GS Hypo Cement to the ridge inside the rivetable and press an SS34 crystal flatback into place. Repeat to glue in the remaining four flatbacks.
  10. Allow all glue to dry thoroughly before wearing.
