Retired - The Mint Sea Bracelet

PROJECT B3088
Designer: Karlin Jones
Skill Level: Beginner
Refreshing and serene, the Mint Sea bracelet features Regaliz Portuguese cork cord and sea glass beads in a soft seafoam green color palette.
Instructions
This bangle bracelet measures 8 inches, 7" for the cork cord and 1" for the focal. To make a bracelet that is longer or shorter, simply adjust the length of cork cord.
  1. Begin by taking one of your silver plated barrel cord ends and add in a few dabs of Super New glue. Gently place one end of your 7" length of cork cord into the glue. Hold in place until dry.
  2. Repeat with the other end of your cork cord length and glue into your second barrel cord end.
  3. Next, take your 2" silver plated eye pin and string on 6 pieces of sea glass beads (I looked through my selection of sea glass and chose the pieces that looked the best together, size and shape-wise). Once all the beads are on, create a simple wire loop and snip off any excess wire using your flush cutters.
  4. Using your chain nose pliers, open a silver plated jump ring and slide it onto the loop of one of your cord ends. Before closing, also slide it onto the simple loop on one end of your eye pin. Close the jump ring.
  5. Repeat with the second cord end and second simple loop on your eye pin.
  6. All done!
