DIY Bracelets

We have been doing a lot of beading around our house lately. The girls were ready to move beyond elastic string and knots, so I decided to create simple instructions for them to make the process easier.

Supplies:

Instructions:

  1. String the crush bead & clasp onto the tiger tail wire.
  2. String your tiger tail wire back through the crush bead and push the crush bead towards the clasp.
  3. Use flat nose pliers to “crush” your crush bead flat.
  4. Design bracelet and string beads onto tiger tail.
  5. When your bracelet is complete, add the crush bead and jump ring to the end.
  6. String tiger tail wire back through the crush bead.
  7. Push the crush bead towards the jump ring and if possible thread the tiger tail back through a couple of beads.
  8. Use clippers or sharp scissors to cut off the remaining tiger tail.
  9. Use flat nose pliers to “crush” the crush bead flat.
  10. Wear and enjoy your handmade bracelet!
