Project Description:

I found this pattern on Beadalon's website when looking for some inspiration on the Elasticity Chain, a project by Katie Hacker. You heard of using bracelets or bands to switch from wrist to wrist when you are working to remember something, giving thanks, diets etc. So I thought it would be great to use these flower composite stone beads in a couple of sizes. This is of course a great way to use the Elasticity Chain too!

Instructions:


This project uses a rosary loop technique, if you are not familiar with this technique, please watch the following video:
Rosary Loop Video
  1. I will tell you I had some trouble determining the length. I believe because of the beads I chose are round and not flat, that I need a bit more length to have it sit on the wrist and be comfortable. So when doing this you may want to adjust for your comfort and bead limitations.
  2. On an eye pin, drop a 5mm round, bali spacer 18mm composite bead, bali spacer, 5mm round.
  3. Create another loop on the end of the eye pin, by bending it over the last bead added at a right angle, trimming the wire and creating a rosary loop with your round nose pliers.
  4. Open eye loop and slip it onto the end of the Elasticity chain and close.
  5. Cut the chain to about 6" for the 18mm bead unit; about 6 1/4" to 6 1/2" for the 14mm bead unit or the length you desire (it is easy to make adjustments if you cut it too long).
  6. Prepare the other bead units as above and add them to the Elasticity Chain so you can begin your memory journey.
