Introduction: Sugru Custom Jelly Bracelet
Jelly bracelets can be found in almost any color but sometimes you can't find "the right one". Here's an Instructable using Sugru that will help you make the perfect jelly bracelet to compliment your outfit. You'll have to let the Sugru cure for up to 24 hours but that could be just enough time for you if you plan your wardrobe and accessories ahead of time.

Step 1: Choose Your Colors
This could be the easiest or hardest step for you but go ahead and choose a few colors.
If Sugru does not come in the color you're looking for, you can mix them to get almost any color you need.
I am going to mix black and white Sugru to get gray. In addition to gray, I will also use two packets of blue Sugru.
Step 2: Roll It Out & Cut It
Roll each color component into a strip about 6 inches long and then cut each strip into 1 inch sections.
Step 3: Connect the Pieces
Connect the pieces in whichever order you prefer.
Overlap the ends a little so that when you roll it together, then colors stick to each other.
Fold the length of Sugru in half to overlap the entire strip as shown below.
Step 4: Final Measures
When rolling the Sugru for the last time, lightly lay it around the person's wrist to measure the proper length.
Continue rolling out the Sugru until it is long enough. Pinch or cut off any excess and then connect the two ends. This part can be a little tricky. Once you're happy with the shape of your bracelet, leave it on a piece of wax paper to cure overnight. Sugru recommends letting it cure for up to 24 hours.
