Elastic Bracelets

I have been using "Stretch Magic" elastic to make bracelets to go with my necklaces. I bought this elastic from EE Beads. Fire Mountain has a similar product.

These bracelets only take a few minutes to make and are a great way to use up the few extra beads left over from your necklace projects.

I arrange my beads to form a 7 inch long bracelet. You may have to fuss with the different bead sizes to get the right size. Once you have your beads arranged take your spool of elastic and string the beads without cutting a length of elastic. This will keep your beads in place.

To finish my bracelets, I usually select a larger complementary bead for the end. I pull both ends of the elastic through this bead, and then pull both ends through a small crimp bead. I then flatten the crimp bead with pliers to secure the beads.

That's it ... slip it over your wrist and admire your handiwork.
