How To Make A Bracelet With Tiny Beads?
The following are step-by-step instructions for making a bracelet with tiny beads:
1. Measure Your Wrist And Cut The Elastic To Size. Wrap your wrist 1.5 times with the stretchable elastic cord. Then, using scissors, trim the elastic away from your wrist approximately 2 inches (5.1 cm). This extra cord will assist you in tying your knot later.
Place the elastic around your wrist at the desired location for the bracelet. Add additional slack if you want a looser fit. Draw the adjustable close to the skin if you like a more snug fit.
The average bracelet length for adult women is 7 inches (18 cm), and for adult men, 8 inches (20 cm).
You may use a colored or clear elastic cord for your project, but remember that a colored line could be seen through the beads.
2. Stretch Out The Elastic. Before making your bracelet, extend it to prevent it from overstretching or breaking. Holding the elastic between your fingertips give it several light tugs.
No concerns if your stretch cord breaks while performing this action! Measure and cut a second piece to size.
3. Fold Some Tape Over One End Of The Elastic. This step is optional but can help you maintain the beads on the cord (especially if you are a beginner). Adhere tape to the end of the elastic and wrap it over.
Consider the tape to be a buffer for the crystals. As you attach the beads, they will stop rather than slide off the cord.
It doesn’t matter what kind of tape you use; use whatever is available.
Need to tape? Not an issue! Instead of a stopper or buffer, use a binder clip or paper clip.
4. Thread Your Beads Onto The Elastic Until You Reach Your Desired Length. Commence threading beads onto the cord’s uncovered end. Continue stringing beads until the size is sufficient to cover your forearm.
Consider arranging your bead motif in advance. It is beneficial if you want a particular bead to be the focal point of the design.
Be sure to leave enough slack to tie off the bracelet when determining if there are enough beads on the cord by winding it around your wrist.
5. Tie A Square Knot To Secure Your Bracelet. Create a simple knot by interlacing the two ends of the elastic over and under one another. Then, create a second knot by crossing the strand you brought under the other strand. To secure your square knot, pull the ends of the elastic taut.
Apply a dab of super adhesive to the knot for added security.
6. Cut Off The Excess String And Show Off Your Bracelet. Remove the extra thread after securing the knot. To conceal the knot, manipulate the elastic to slide it between beads. Now, all left to do is put on your bracelet and display it to your friends!
If you use glue to secure your bracelet, you must wait at least 15 minutes before it dries before placing it on. If not, the adhesive may extend or separate from the cord.
