Stretch out approx 50cm's of the elasticity and thread on your desired number of beads with a jump ring in between each one, finish with a charm carrier.


Step Two

Tie a basic overhand knot, one end over the other and back through the loop pulling the beads together.


Step Three

Tie an overhand knot again passing one end through twice and pull tight bringing the bracelet together


Step Four

Pull the beads each side of the knot slightly apart checking that it does not come undone. Add a little hypo cement or clear nail varnish to secure the knot and let it dry completely. Carefully trim off the excess elastic close to the knot.


Step Five

Using flat nose pliers open a jump ring, add your charm and connect to the charm carrier to complete the bracelet.
