Project Instructions

Cut the elastic cord into two 10" pieces.  

Slide one 3mm silver glass faceted round, one 8mm silver iris glass faceted round and one 3mm silver glass faceted round on one eyepin. 

Make a simple loop 1¼ " from the first loop, allowing the beads to slide on the eyepin.  

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 nine more times for a total of ten sliding links.  

String the following onto one piece of elastic cord: one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the loop of one sliding link, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the top two loops of one thick gunmetal slider, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the loop of one sliding link, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone and the top two loops of one thin gunmetal slider.  

Repeat Step 5 four more times.  

String the following onto the second piece of elastic cord through the lower part of the bracelet: one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the other loop of the first sliding link, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the bottom two loops of the first thick gunmetal slider, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the other loop of the second sliding link, one 4mm silver glass faceted bicone, the bottom two loops of the first thin gunmetal slider.  

Repeat Step 7, working your way through the beads and sliding links and gunmetal sliders.  

Tie surgeon's knots in corresponding elastic cords to finish the bracelet.  

Place a dot of Beadalon® bead stringing glue onto each of the knots and let dry overnight. Trim tails after glue has cured.
