Men's Simple Black Stretchy Evil Eye Bracelet: Project Instructions

Posted by Eureka! Beads on 20th Mar 2019

Also known as nazar, this evil eye talisman can be used around the home, car and business, as well as in jewellery, to keep evil at bay. Simple and elegant - just what I like in a project!

MATERIALS REQUIRED

  • 1 blue evil eye glass tube bead
  • 4 x 6mm plain metal beads
  • 40cm x 1mm beading elastic
  • 21cm x 3mm memory wire rubber tubing

TOOLS REQUIRED

  • scissors
  • glue
  • 1 big hole beading needle

INSTRUCTIONS

Measure your wrist. Take the wrist measurement and subtract 3.5cm. Divide that number by 3 and then cut three lengths of memory wire tubing to that length. An average wrist would use 3 x 5cm lengths.

Thread one end of the elastic through the eye of the big eye needle. Then, holding the other end of the elastic (so your beads don't fall off), use the beading needle to thread on:

  • 1 x 6mm black plain metal bead.
  • 1 piece of the 3mm memory wire tubing
  • 1 x 6mm plain metal bead
  • 1 piece of memory wire tubing
  • 1 x 6mm plain metal bead
  • 1 piece of memory wire tubing
  • 1 x 6mm plain metal bead
  • 1 evil eye tube bead

Remove the needle and bring the two ends of the elastic together, pulling tightly. Tie a simple overhand knot like the way you tie off the end of a balloon. Cover the knot with beaders glue or clear nail polish. Leave the glue to dry one hour before trimming off the excess elastic.

Gently drag the knot around until it is inside the hole of the evil eye bead. Your bracelet is now ready to wear.

TIP: try making your bracelet with a mood bead instead of the evil eye bead for a different look!
