Crystal, Bead Bracelet, DIY

I am constantly thinking of different, little, easy bracelets
I can add to some of my bracelet ensembles. 
Here is one I came up with yesterday.

 Tutorial
Things you need
  1.  I  used 3,  Crystal Beads.
  2. Cord ,two pieces one 22 inches long,  the other about 6 inches long.



Take your cord that is 22 inches long
 Fold in half and tie a knot in the middle.
String your bead.
Tie another knot.



now you are going to tie a square knot to connect the two cords,
How to, for square knot HERE!
I just learned how to tie a square knot today, so I am pretty excited.



measure the widest part of your hand, so you can slip the bracelet on and off.


Keep it at this measurement,
and add your two other beads, one on each cord
 tie a knot on both ends after the bead,
place a little glue on the knots
(I use E-6000 glue)
Trim the excess cord
Now you are finished



Something fun to do on the weekend.
Make some for your friends for Valentine's Day. 
Easy and inexpensive.
Have a wonderful Friday.
Lots of <3,
Anne

  4. Love these bracelets. Perfect for summer. I'm going to try it with some gemstones instead of crystals though.

  6. Thanks for sharing this tutorial! I have tried numerous beading techniques but always found them too intricate for me. These bracelets work up so quick, I made 3 already. Can't wait to get some more supplies, now that I know how to make them.

  7. You must check out the ornaments, included in a set, before buying them. The ornaments for the ears, such as Tresor Paris Drop Earrings, which come with different features, should be maintained properly, if you want to retain the luster of the ornaments.

  8. I think this crystal bracelet is very cute and whimsical. I love the choice of the cord and I think it really brings out the sparkle of the bracelet and the beauty of the crystals. Thank you so much for the tutorial. It is very helpful.
