by Creative Unicorn

Rock summer with these cute, fashionable and fun bracelets.

Supplies

  • Elastic cord (or any other string)
  • Seed beads
  • A couple unique bigger beads
  • Several charms, tassels
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I am doing a 7 1/2 inch centerline-19cm, because it fits most, especially if you use elastic cord. But you can do whatever size you want! Make sure it is a little bigger than the size.

    Step 2

    Tie a double knot at the end. Make sure there is extra string after the knot, so you can tie it off.

    Step 3

    As quick as possible insert the string into a flame, to melt the end so it does not fray. (CAUTION: DO NOT DO THIS STEP IF YOUR STRING IN FLAMMABLE)

    Step 4

    Here is what it should look like.

    Step 5

    Start stringing on seed beads. You can do a pattern, or just one color.

    Step 6

    Choose several charms and unique beads.

    Step 7

    Go ahead and insert them onto the string.

    Step 8

    Continue the pattern. You want the pattern to continue. For instance, I don't want to end in blue on each side.

    Step 9

    Move the beads from the knot.

    Step 10

    Tie a knot. Don't include the knot from the beginning. If you are using elastic cord, make sure you do not pull it tight, because it will not stretch.

    Step 11

    Do a second one, make sure it is very tight, as tight as possible.

    Step 12

    Do it one more time.

    Step 13

    Cut of the extra string.

    Step 14

    TA-DA!!!

    Step 15

    You can also use just one unique bead.

    Step 16

    Or one charm.

    Step 17

    Or spread charms and unique beads out.

    Step 18

    Or use no charms or unique beads.
