Steps To Make Beaded Stretch Bracelets

Beaded Stretch Bracelet Step 1

1. Use scissors to cut desired length of stretch cord. Measure out double the length of the desired bracelet size; we always recommend using a double or triple strand of cord for added strength and durability. Leave about 2-3" extra at each end to tie your knot in the final step.

2. Fold beading wire in half to use as a "needle" to thread cord through bead holes. Fold cord in half and slide onto wire "needle. Tape the tail of the cord to your work surface to prevent beads from sliding off. Thread bead pattern onto cord.

3. Tie a slip knot and tug on the ends to make cord taut through the beads. You will want the cord to have some stretch to it, but you want to avoid having slack in the cord and gaps between the beads.
