Stained Glass Cuff Bracelet
A mix of colorful Czech glass beads come together to create this sparkling cuff bracelet, and it’s all created with safety pins! Yes, safety pins. So easy to make you can do it while you watch TV. Thread beads on open pins then string stretchy cord through the tops and bottoms with a small silver bead separating each pin. This glass masterpiece measures a generous 1.5” wide. The perfect piece to slip on when you just can’t decide what color bracelet to wear.
step 3 - Cut two eight inch long pieces of stretch cord.
Step 7 - Tie the bottom cord ends together in the same way. When the glue is dry, trim the cords close to the knots and turn your new bracelet right side out.
This bracelet measures 6.25” around. If your wrist is bigger, you will need to add more pins and beads.
The bracelet should not squeeze the wrist but rather encircle it. If the bracelet is too tight on the wrist, the excessive and repeated stretching of the cord to get it on and off will cause it to lose it’s elasticity more quickly.
