America Sparkles Bracelet Instructions Designed by Artbeads
This bracelet has to be worn to be fully appreciated! The Swarovski cotton yarn feels fabulous against the skin and sparkles with lots of crystals! Wear this bracelet year round and especially on patriotic occasions.
Step One: Lay out your 3 strands of Swarovski yarn with bicones side by side. Trim the red yarn in half to make two 3 foot strands. Depending on how long you want your bracelet to be, take a hold of the ends of these yarns and tightly wrap around your hand.
Step Two: Carefully place the ends of the yarn into a glue-filled endcap and squeeze with nylon jaw pliers*. Repeat for other side.
Step Three: After glue is thoroughly dried, attach your toggle clasp with jump rings. Use two jump rings on the side of the toggle with the bar for added length. *Tip: To help protect the silver from scratches & dents, cover the ribbon ends with a piece of cloth or masking tape before pinching with pliers.
