Magnesite skull beads in dazzling multi-colored hues adorn this simple stretch bracelet, punctuated by a TierraCast Dia de los Muertos sacred heart charm.

These instructions will make a 7 inch bracelet. To modify the length, adjust the length of Opelon cord and the number of beads accordingly.
  1. Cut a piece of Opelon stretch cord about 10 inches long. Place a bead stopper 2 inches from one end.
  2. String 14 skull beads onto the cord in random color order, then remove the bead stopper.
  3. Tie an overhand knot to close the bracelet, then double-knot it. Using your scissors, cut off the excess Opelon cord about 1/8 inch from the knot.
  4. Open a jump ring. Slide it through the loop at the top of the TierraCast sacred heart pendant, then close the jump ring around the cord of the bracelet between any two skull beads. All done!
