My Pretty Bracelet Project
That is exactly what I thought after I completed this bracelet, that it was pretty! Nothing complicated about it, with the bead bandits it is a pretty polished piece!

Tools and Materials Needed:
- View the video for a quick how to on the Bead Bandits.
- Cut your beading wire about 12" and attach a bead bandit to the end of the wire according to the video.
- Note: The inventor of the Bead Bandits suggested that you add a bit of glue on the threads before screwing it on, to keep it from coming unscrewed while wearing it.
- String the following onto the wire: 6mm rose peach round, 3mm gf, 6mm rose peach round, 5mm gf, 6mm luminous green round, 8mm rose peach round, 8mm luminous green bicone, 10mm rose peach bicone, 7mm gf, 8mm luminous green bicone, 7mm gf, 10mm rose peach bicone, 7mm gf, 8mm luminous green bicone, 7mm gf,10mm rose peach bicone, 8mm luminous green bicone, 8mm rose peach round, 6mm luminous green round, 5mm gf, 6mm rose peach round, 3mm gf,6mm rose peach round.
- Slide the threaded piece of the bead bandit on the wire, then the crimp bead, make sure that you do not crimp the bracelet without enough slack to be flexible by scrunching it your hand, crimp and add the other half of the bead bandit including a bit of glue on the threads.
