Instructions

Before you begin, measure your wrist to determine how long you want your bracelet to be. I made mine about 1 1/2" larger than my wrist.
  1. Begin by cutting six 1' lengths of Opelon floss stretch cord.
  2. Gather the lengths together and place a bead stopper 2-3 inches from one end of the cords.
  3. String your beads onto the cords in the following pattern:
  4. Row 1: Place a lilac pearl twin bead onto the first two cords. Then place a twin bead on the middle two cords, and another onto the last two cords.
  5. Row 2: String a silver supra metallic 8/0 Czech seed bead onto the first cord. Then place a twin bead onto the next two cords, and another onto the two cords after those. String another silver seed bead onto the last cord.
  6. Row 3: Repeat row 1.
  7. Row 4: String a silver lined black diamond 8/0 Czech seed bead onto the first cord. Then place a twin bead onto the next two cords, and another onto the two cords after those. String another black diamond seed bead onto the last cord.
  8. Repeat the pattern until your bracelet is the desired length.
  9. Watch the video: How to Make a Stretch Bracelet. This video will show you how to connect the ends of your bracelet and finish off the cords.
