  • 1 fairy metal charm

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • Wire Cutters

  • clear nail polish

INSTRUCTIONS

note: these quantities make an 21cm (medium) bracelet. To make a shorter bracelet, simply add less beads. The bead holding everything together can either be a flower barrel leather drop, or a large hole clip bead with loop, both work the same way.

Pick up your piece of beading elastic and tie a knot on one end. Cover with clear nail polish and allow to dry.

Next, thread onto your beading elastic:

  • 41 x size 5 purple seed beads
  • 1 x 'believe' (or 'wisdom') metal charm
  • 18 x size 5 purple seed beads

Thread on the flower barrel leather drop (or the large hole clip bead with loop), followed by:

  • 28 x size 5 pink seed beads
  • 1 x 'courage' metal charm
  • 29 x size 5 pink seed beads

Thread through the original flower barrel leather drop (or the large hole clip bead with loop), followed by:

  • 39 x size 5 pastel pink seed beads
  • 1 x 'love' metal charm
  • 16 x size 5 pastel pink seed beads

Thread through the original flower barrel leather drop, 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. Finish by adding a dab of clear nail polish or glue. Once dry, cut off any excess beading elastic.

Thread your fairy charm onto a jump ring and attach to the loop on the flower barrel leather drop (or large hole clip bead). As the jump rings are strong, you will need two sets of pliers to open them.

Your bracelet is now ready to wear!
