Charmed Christmas Elastic Bracelet: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 18th Mar 2019

Use chain and red and green glass pearl beads to create an elegant yet simple Christmas bracelet. Strung on beading elastic, pulling your bracelet on and off is as easy as can be.

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 30cm x 1mm beading elastic
  • 2 x 8.5cm large chain
  • 11 x 8mm red glass pearl beads
  • 11 x 8mm green glass pearl beads
  • 1 flower barrel leather drop
  • 1 x 6mm strong jump ring
  • 1 metal charm

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Wire Cutters
  • 2 x Crimping Pliers
  • clear nail polish

INSTRUCTIONS

Pick up your piece of beading elastic and tie a loose knot in one end. On the other end, thread on:

one of lengths of chain, threading in and out of each of the links

  • 22 x 8mm glass pearl beads (we alternated between red and green)
  • the second length of chain, threading in and out of each of the links
  • the flower barrel leather drop

Untie the loose knot from before, then bring the two ends of the elastic together and pull up tightly, making sure the bracelet is tight. Tie a knot as if you're tying a balloon. Repeat the knot several times. Open up the jump ring (as it is quite strong, you will need to use two pairs of pliers). Thread it through the loop on the bottom of the leather drop, and also through the loop at the top of the charm, close securely. Finish by adding a dab of clear nail polish or glue to the knot. Once dry, cut off any excess beading elastic. Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
