red and black lava bead stacking bracelets

Step 1
Project Note: The below instructions are written for 6½" bracelets. If larger bracelets are needed, adjust lengths and number of beads.
 
Cut three 9" lengths of Stretch Magic®.
 
TIP: If larger bracelets are needed, cut 10"-11" lengths. 
Step 2
For the black and clear bracelet, thread eight clear beads onto one of the Stretch Magic® lengths. Thread two 8mm lava beads, one 10mm lava bead and two more 8mm lava beads. Add eight more clear beads.
 
TIP: For a 7½" bracelet, add two clear beads to one side and one clear bead to the other.
Step 3
Tie the Stretch Magic® into a tight double knot and tuck ends into adjacent beads. Add a dab of E-6000® adhesive over the knot and pull the ends tight so the two adjacent beads press together tightly, hiding the knot. Set aside for the adhesive to dry. 
Step 4
For the black lava bead bracelet, thread 21 8mm lava beads onto the second length of Stretch Magic®.
 
TIP: For a 7½" bracelet, add three lava beads.
Step 5
Repeat Step 3 to finish the bracelet. 
Step 6
For the third bracelet, thread three red wood beads, one clear bead, one 8mm lava bead, one 10mm lava bead, one 8mm lava bead and one clear bead onto the last length of Stretch Magic®. Repeat the sequence one more time. 
 
TIP: For a 7½" bracelet, thread four red beads instead of three in each red section of the bracelet.
