- Slider, 5x30mm – Reconstituted Turquoise (24)

- Glass 11/0 Seed Beads – Red (96)
- Stretch Magic® Jewelry Cord, .7mm (24")
- G-S Hypo Cement
Step 1 Divide the Stretch Magic® cord in half. Tape one end or use a wire keeper to ensure the beads will not fall off the end.
Step 2 String the following pattern: one turquoise slider, one seed bead. Repeat eleven times.
Step 3 Repeat Step 2 with the other side of the two-hole slider.
Step 4 On one strand, string (12) seed beads and pass through the hole of the large round mosaic lentil bead. Repeat with the other side, passing the cord through the opposite hole. Add (12) seed beads to each strand of cord on either side of the center stone.
Step 5 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 for the other half of the bracelet. Check to be sure that the bracelet will fit snugly. Adjust the pattern as necessary.
Step 6 Finish by tying four overhand knots on each side of the slider. Use a small amount of G-S Hypo Cement to each knot to secure and let dry. Trim the ends of the cord when the glue is dry.
