Garden's Arrival Bracelet Instructions Designed by Cynthia Kimura
This "Garden's Arrival" bracelet is blooming with layered flowers. Featuring a fashionable cuff-style, this fun bracelet exudes feminine energy in a pink and purple color scheme.
Step one: First, create five layered flowers. Use 5-minute Epoxy to glue an assortment of flower beads together, stacking smaller beads on top of larger beads. Please refer to the components list to see the specific beads we used. We finished some of our flowers with a 3mm Czech glass fire-polished bead in crystal AB placed in the center. Set these flowers aside to dry.
Step two: Cut a piece of Lacy's stiff stuff large enough to completely cover the 1 1/4-inch aluminum rounded edge cuff. Next, use purple fabric spray to color the Lacy's Stiff Stuff and allow time to dry. Spread a thin layer of glue over the cuff and wrap the Stiff Stuff around the cuff. Glue the edges to the underside of the cuff. Trim the Stiff Stuff on either end of the cuff leaving a small overhang. Sew the Stiff Stuff together over the ends of the cuff with dark purple Nymo D Bobbin thread.
Step three: Use Gem-Tac adhesive to glue a piece of pink silk ribbon along the middle of the cuff and around the underside so that it covers the Stiff Stuff seam.
Step four: Plan how you would like the flowers arranged on your cuff. In addition to your layered flowers from step one, include two 22.5mm Swarovski silver-plated lily filigrees in Crystal, one 27mm Swarovski silver-plated sunflower filigree in Rose, one TierraCast® rhodium flower bead and one 22mm resin rose - transparent in matte crystal. When you are pleased with your arrangement, glue the flowers to the cuff with Gem-Tac and allow time to dry.
