Use glass beads to create this funky bracelet and earrings set. The bracelet is beaded on elastic cord, making it easy to slip on and off.
Elasticity™ elastic bead cord, 1mm diameter
Six 12mm blue/turquoise square furnace glass slices
Twelve 10mm A/B finish clear faceted glass beads
Six 8mm silver spacers
G/S Hypo Cement glue
Two 6mm A/B finish clear faceted glass beads
Two 12mm blue/turquoise square furnace glass slices
Two 8mm silver spacers
Two 2″ silver head pins two silver ear wires
Beadstorm™ Round Nose Pliers
1. Cut a 9 1/2″ length of Elasticity™. Place a piece of adhesive tape over one end to prevent the beads from sliding off. String beads in the following pattern: furnace glass bead, faceted bead, silver spacer, faceted bead. Repeat this pattern six times. When using 1012mm
beads, make the bracelet 1/4-1/2″ larger than your usual size.
2. Remove the adhesive tape. Tie the ends in a square knot. Place a drop of glue on the knot; let it dry. Cut off any excess cord, then tuck the knot into the nearest large-hole bead.
1. String a faceted bead, a furnace glass bead and a silver spacer onto a head pin. Use round nose pliers to make a loop above the top bead. Wrap the extra wire around the base of the loop. Attach the loop to the lower loop on an ear wire.
