Project Instructions

Step 1 String 18 iris glass beads on thin stretchy cord and form a knot. Tuck the cord ends into adjacent beads and trim. Dab glue around the silver edge of one violet slider. Place the beaded cord around the metal frame. Let dry.

Step 2 Use 4" of wire to string the left hole of the beaded slider created in Step 1. Wrap the wire through 1 bracelet cuff link and back through the left hole. Wrap the wire several times around the cuff link to secure. Tuck in the wire ends and trim. Repeat entire step using the right hole of the slider.

Step 3 Use 6" of wire to string the right hole of one violet slider and the opposite end of the bracelet cuff link strung in Step 2. Wrap the wire through the cuff link and back through the right hole. Wrap the remaining wire vertically over the previous wire wraps. Tuck in the wire ends and trim. Repeat entire step using the right hole of the slider.

Step 4 Repeat Step 3, wrapping the remaining slider to the left side of the beaded center slider.

Tips

Use chain-nose pliers to tighten wire, tuck in ends, and weave through tight spots you cannot reach with your fingers.
