Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?

Step 1: Materials

To make these bracelets, you will need the following:
- suede lace (not  sure about how to translate it)
- flat-nose plier
- scissors
- beads
- lace clip

Step 2: The Right Size

The size of the bracelet is entirely your choice of course. I wanted the bracelet to wrap around my wrist three times, so I measured how long it should be to be wrapped three times and added a bit of extra, since it will have to fit over your hand.

Step 3: Add the Beads

Take your beads and add them to the string. You can use an order, or put them on random. For the darkest bracelet I didn't use an order, for the other two I did.

Step 4: Close the Bracelet

Take the lace clip and your pliers. Break of the round part as shown in the picures. 
Then, add the laceclip to the bracelet and close it.

Step 5: Wear It!

That's it! Now you cvan wrap it around your wrist and wear it!
I hope you liked it, please share your pictures if you have made one.

    Question 1 year ago on Step 1

    How do I figure ot what size bead will fit on the cord snuggly sovwont slide around? How to figure size of hole in bead. Thank you!


    Answer 1 year ago

    The cord is about 1 x 2 mm I believe; the length is approximately 3 times the size of your wrist with a bit extra added

    Love the look of this bracelet and want to make one for myself and a couple for Chirstmas gifts, but as someone VERY VERY new to jewelry, I need some help. Would you let me know what size beads and suede lace you used? The beads I bought are too big for the lace and slide. Thanks!

    Great question! It has been a while since I made these actually, so I'm not really sure.. I do think that you can find the measurements you need: you'll want the suede lace to be wider than the inner diameter of the bead
