bright tassel stacked stretch bracelets

This summer, show off your style and have some fun at the same time! Make these bright stretch bracelets with your favorite beads, tassels and charms. We’ll show you how easy it is to make a few, or a LOT! When you’re done, stack ‘em up – you can’t have too many!
Step 1
Cut one 10" length of Stretch Magic® jewelry cord for each bracelet you’re going to make. 
Step 2
Pick out the beads you’d like to use and thread them onto each of the stretch cords. The number of beads you’ll need for each bracelet will vary based on bead size, so just measure against your own wrist as you work, to make sure each strand of beads is long enough.

TIP: Have fun! Mix and match the colors and styles of beads.
Step 3
Once you’ve strung a bracelet with beads, tie the stretch cord into a tight surgeon’s knot, then tuck its ends back through the closest beads. Do this for each bracelet as you finish. 
Step 4
Add a dab of bead stringing glue over the knot. Now, pull the ends tight, so the two closest beads press together tightly, hiding the knot. Trim the ends of the stretch cord, then set your bracelet aside to give the glue time to dry. Repeat for the rest of your bracelets. 
Step 5
Add tassels and charms to some of your stacking bracelets. To do this, open the jump ring at the top of your charm, then slip it onto your bracelet, in between two beads. Now you can close the jump ring. Repeat to add as many tassels and charms as you’d like to your bracelets. Once that’s done, you’re ready to stack them up and show them off!

TIP: Here’s the best way to open and close a jump ring: grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers, then twist the ring open from side to side. Never pull the jump ring apart, since that can distort its circular shape. We’ve got a quick video that’ll show you how, click here.
