Step One: Cut a piece of 0.7mm Elonga multi-strand stretch cord approximately three inches longer than your wrist. Place a bead stopper at one end of the cord.
Step Two: String on the TierraCast™ antique silver teddy bear bead. Follow with a 4mm bright daisy spacer, 6mm Swarovski faceted round in sapphire, spacer, 5mm sterling silver seamless round bead, spacer, sapphire round and spacer. Continue with the TierraCast™ antique silver lady bug bead, sapphire crystal/silver pattern, TierraCast™ antique silver turtle bead, sapphire crystal/silver pattern, TierraCast™ antique silver frog bead, crystal/silver pattern replacing 5mm Swarovski faceted rounds in hyacinth for sapphire rounds, TierraCast™ antique silver bunny bead, hyacinth crystal/silver pattern.
Step Three: Slide the beads to the middle of the elastic cording and tie a simple square knot. Remember when working with stretchy materials, do not stretch them when tying the knot. Dab the knot with a bit of adhesive, we recommend GS Hypo. When the glue is dry, trim the ends of the Elonga and pull a bead over the knot to hide it.
