I’m not tackling anything too difficult these days with jewelry. Just looking for some easy fun with supplies that I already have. I haven’t used stretch cord in a very long time, so these were a bit of fun yesterday. Got out all my seed beads and smallish beads. The knots ended up too large to slide inside the seed beads, so I camouflaged them with a dangling charm. Beaded 14 inches of pre-stretched cord so they can easily double wrap on my wrist.
Added note…I wanted a random look for the aqua-green and gold bracelet with the palm tree charm. I learned this easy trick to do this. Pretty sure I’ve shared this before, but it’s been awhile.
First I decided on a number sequence with 1-5.
I chose 4-1-3-5-2.
Using this number pattern for the greenish beads, I put a gold bead between each grouping. EX. 4 greens, 1 gold, 1 green, 1 gold, 3 greens, 1 gold, etc… Keep repeating the pattern until you reach the desired length.
Does that make sense? Visually you get a random look with little effort and without the worry about the outcome. Works like a charm every time!
