Who says that beautiful jewelry has to be difficult to make? This bracelet features very pretty slider beads,
and the stretchy cord makes putting it on and taking it off a breeze.
- Cut two pieces of Stretch Magic one foot long each. Secure one end of each piece with a Bead Stopper.
Thread the two pieces of stretch cord through the two sets of holes on the slider beads.
On each of the pieces of stretch cord thread two seed beads, an 8mm fire polish bead, and two more seed beads. (NOTE: I chose to use the same color from the fire polish mix. You may do the same, or you can use a variety of colors.)
Thread both pieces of stretch cord through both sets of holes on another slider bead. Repeat the steps until you have all six slider beads on the strands with four seed beads and one fire polish on each strand between each slider.
When you come to the end, thread each end of both pieces of stretch cord so that they meet behind one of the slider beads. This is where you will make your knots, so that they are hidden.
Tie a double knot with both ends of the stretch cord and apply a dab of E6000 glue to each knot. Allow the glue to dry for twenty-four hours before wearing the bracelet.
Trim off excess stretch cord.
