* I made this bracelet for my sister who is only a toddler. That is why my finished product is so small. As she is very young I wanted it to fit snugly, but not right so she would be able to keep it on.
Step 1: Gather Materials
-scissors (not shown)
-beads (size 6)
Step 2: Getting Started
Then thread your needle. This is often the hardest part, as sewing needles have a very small hole. Being patient is key for this step. :)
*I chose to use gold elastic cord instead of clear to make my bracelet for this tutorial. The gold shows up much better on camera, mailing it easier for me to show the steps. However, I recommend using clear as it will be less noticeable when the bracelet is completed.
The end of the string that is not threaded into the needle must then be tapes to a sturdy work surface.
Step 3: Adding First Beads
Next, go back through the first petal bead with your needle, as shown in pictures above. Pull tightly. You have now done half of the first flower.
Now string three more petal beads. Then pull the needle through the petal bead that is directly below the centre bead. Pull sting right. Yay!! You have know completed your first flower.
Lastly, string on your spacer beads. This is not mandatory. You don't need to put on any, or you could go crazy and do ten! It's up to you!
Step 4: Continuing
Embarrassingly, I ran out of orange beads as I went along. Instead of starting over, I just decided to use a different colour for my petal beads. I recommend doing a pattern, or continuing with the same colours, but it does give the bracelet a unique look.
