stretch magic® rondelle bead bracelets

Step 1
Pour out about half of the beads from the bead jar into the center compartments of your bead board. 
Step 2
Remove the jump ring from a Gold open star charm. Open the jump ring on the “you got this!” charm, slide the Gold open star charm on and close the jump ring.
 
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring, which can cause distortion.
Step 3
Use the grooves around the bead board to plan your bracelets.
 
TIP: Lay them out side-by-side so you can see how well they will look together on your arm.
Step 4
Measure the wrist. Measure Stretch Magic® jewelry cord to that length and add 4", then cut. Cut two more pieces for a total of three strands of cording. 
Step 5
Pre-stretch the cord by holding an end in each hand and pulling. 
Step 6
Add your chosen beads and charms to each strand of cut Stretch Magic® cords.
 
TIP: Use a piece of tape to hold one end of the Stretch Magic® strand you are beading.
Step 7
If using a connector bead in the center of a strand, tie one end of the cord to one side of the connector bead. Tie several knots. Place a dab of Hypo™ Cement over the knot and thread first bead. Carefully push the bead over the knot with the glue. Thread the remainder of the beads and tie end onto the other side of the connector bead. Carefully pull the last bead back, add dab of glue and place the bead back over the knots. Thread the excess through the second bead and let glue dry. 
Step 8
When simply threading beads onto the cord, tie the two ends together in multiple knots. Thread each end of the excess cord through the bead on each side of the knots, place a dab of Hypo™ Cement over the knot and carefully pull the knot into the hole of one of the beads on either side. Let glue dry.
 
TIP: Use a toothpick to add glue.
Step 9
Trim excess cord.
