Use elastic cord to create an easy and pretty bracelet.

Finished sizes: 7 1/2" to 8" Bracelet

Skill: 1 Time: 1 Cost: 1

You will need:
•  24" clear .8mm elastic bead stringing cord*
•  Five 4" pieces of assorted 3-5mm ribbons
•  20 purple acrylic nuggets (14x13x6mm-17x15x8mm)
•  10 silver plated corrugated rondelles
•  Clear nail varnish or clear drying adhesive
•  Scissors

*Powercord elastic beading cord was used for this project.

Note: For product information, see end of article. 

•  For more information, see Beading 101: Elastic Cord Technique. 

STEP 1: Cut cord. Cut two pieces of 12" stretch cord.

STEP 2: Thread beads. Thread enough beads to fit your wrist onto one piece of a cord, placing a silver rondelle every other bead. Note: To complete pattern as shown, be sure you have an even number of nugget beads. Repeat with second piece of cord. Note: To make a larger bracelet, add two or three rondelles between every other bead.

STEP 3:  Tie off. Tie a Surgeon's Knot and glue. Trim excess cord when glue is dry.

STEP 4: Embellish. Lay two bracelets on top of each other. Tie a piece of ribbon around both bracelets where there isn’t a silver rondelle between nugget beads.
