Cut approximately 3 to 4 feet of white Nymo string and thread onto one #11 short beading needle. Choose anywhere from three to six different colors of seed beads to work with for one bracelet design and arrange them in your desired order.
String the first foot of thread with one solid color, then the second foot with the next color and so on. Continue this process until you reach the end of the thread and tie a knot to hold the beads in place. You will need to cut more thread and repeat this process to finish the entire cuff.
Apply Gem-Tac permanent adhesive to a small section of one aluminum rounded edge 20 gauge cuff and wrap one beaded strand around the cuff. Repeat this process to cover the entire bracelet, trying to keep the knotted ends on the inside. Hold the ends in place with clothespins until the adhesive has dried completely.
Follow Step one from above, but thread two separate needles. Choose only two colors to work with. Thread each needle with a single color for the entire length and finish with a knot.
Follow Step three from above, except wrap the two different colored strands side by side as you go around the cuff to create the striped look.
