Summer Days Triple Wrap Bracelet

About this design:

This bracelet started out with the Sunshine & Sand Woven Cord. It reminds me of a top thats sun-bleached from wearing it all summer long. I incorporated some cool African Glass rings and TierraCast bails, rings & charms to complete the look. My charm selection was focused on my kids and my fav season -- summer! Mixing metals is a great way to match everything and create something interesting.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Slide bails, large hole beads and slides onto your entire length, tie knot to prevent things from getting too bunched up.
Step 2:
Once you are done stringing all your components, make sure you like the balance and space of beads between bails
Step 3:
Add adhesive to the ends and sides of the cord and a touch of adhesive to the interior of the cord end.
Step 4:
To confirm the length of your bracelet, wrap it around your wrist the desired amounf of times. Make sure that there are enough beads, bails and charms. Cut any excess cord off once you've decided on your length.
Step 5:
Glue the other end of the cord into the cord end and attach a lobster clasp and charm to the cord ends.
Step 6:
Coil the bracelet to see where you want to place your charms, attaching with various jump rings
Step 7:
Mix it up! Mix and match your metal colors.

    So adorable and fun. At first glance my mind went right to “candy necklace.” How clever you are!

    Love this bracelet! Got my cord and rings, etc., but I’m confused about how to keep things from bunching up. In step 1 you say “tie a knot”. With what? Please advise, thanks.

    Great project, but I agree with S. Marzorati – it says “tie a knot” to keep things from bunching up, but tie a knot with what? It doesn’t show anything knotted in the picture.

    I believe the instructions meant to say “try not” to let things bunch up

    The smaller spacers lock the other round beads from going anywhere. They act like a stopper. Ofcourse me, I forgot to get jump rings. But this is a great pattern!
