This 7 inch stretchy bracelet is super cute and very easy and quick to make. All you need is a few beads, a few charms, stretchy line and glue.

Judy Mertz, Aunties Beads Designer

  2. Count out (13) 10mm Moss Green Magnesite beads (referenced as M beads in Step 3 to make things easier) and (13) 3mm copper beads (referenced as C beads in Step 3) .
  3. The order to place on the Elastoma is 1 M bead, 1 C bead, 1 M bead, 1 C bead,1 M bead, 1 C bead, 2 M beads, 1 C bead, 1 Copper Square Dragonfly Charm, 1 C bead, 2 M beads, 1 C bead, 1 Copper Oval Tree of Life Pendant, 1 C bead, 2 M Beads, 1 C bead, 1 Copper Square Dragonfly Charm, 1 C bead, 2 M beads, 1 C bead, 1 Butterfly Charm, 1 C bead, 2 M Beads, 1 C bead, 1 Copper Square Dragonfly Charm, 1 C bead.
  4. Once all the beads are on the elastoma, tie the elastoma 3 times, glue with the hypo cement and pull knot into the M bead next to the knot to secure inside the bead so you donít see the knot.
  5. Cut off any left over elastoma and leave the bracelet until the next day to allow the glue extra time to cure.

Questions and Answers
Q: What type of stretch cord do you use to keep the bracelet from loosing its original size? I receive complaints on how the strech bracelets become to loose.
Asked by: - 9/6/2014 (Submit an answer)
A: We use Elastoma or Elasticity. You should use the largest diameter your beads will accommodate. If your beads are very heavy they may make it stretch out faster. But you also need to remind your customers that this is fashion jewelry and they should expect some wear and tear, especially if it is worn often. Karla
