These gumball bead bracelets have summer fun written all over them! Wear them stacked or alone - it doesn't matter. You will be so on trend and so happy with these bursts of color encircling your wrist. I originally created these using leftover beads from my I Want Candy beaded necklace design, but think they are just adorable enough to be worn on their own. The best part? Though these bracelets are easy enough for a beginner to make, even pros can make them because they are great, trendy pieces to sell and to give as gifts!

  1. Cut a piece of elastic measuring about 12 inches. Wrap one end of the elastic around your hammered link. Tie a knot. Apply a dab of glue to the knot. Drop a gumball bead on the elastic so it also covers the tail. Pull on the elastic so the knot and tail are both inside the gumball bead. (Doing this allows the knot to dry to the inside of the bead and therefore be more secure.)
  2. String a metal bead followed by a gumball bead. Continue to repeat this pattern of gumball bead - metal bead - gumball bead until you have used 11 or 12 gumball beads with a metal seed bead between each gumball bead. (Using 11 beads will fit a small to standard sized wrist; using 12 beads will be better for a larger wrist.)
  3. The last bead you string should be your 11th or 12th gumball bead. Run your elastic through the hammered connector. Tie a knot. Apply a dab of glue. Once again, pull the elastic so the knot dries inside the gumball bead. Make sure your tail exits the gumball bead. Cut the excess elastic cording.
  4. Using 2 pair of chain nose pliers, open a jump ring. Attach it to the hammered link. Close the jump ring. Again, open a jump ring. This time, attach it to one of your charms then to the jump ring you just attached to the hammered link. Close the jump ring. Open another jump ring. Attach it to the other charm. Then attach it to that same jump ring that is attached to the hammered link. Close the jump ring.
