Watch our technique videos on the TierraCast Blog (look for videos on simple loops, cord ends and jump rings).

 

Tip: *Choose E6000 if your cord is a loose fit in the cord end. The thicker adhesive will take up extra space.

 

Steps

  1. Determine desired bracelet length and trim cord to desired size, allowing 1 ½” for cord ends and clasp.
  2. Apply glue into one cord end, dabbing some around sides and placing some at the bottom. (Use toothpick if helpful.)
  3. Insert one end of cord into cord end, turning it so that hole faces up when cord is lying flat on work surface.
  4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 at other end.
  5. Allow to dry.
  6. String one crystal bead onto one head pin. At top of bead bend wire over at right angle, trim to 3/8” and form simple loop. Repeat with second crystal bead and head pin.
  7. Open one oval jump ring and attach charm. Close jump ring. Repeat with crystal dangles, clasp ring, and clasp bar.
  8. Open one round jump ring and attach to hole of one cord end. Before closing jump ring string on crystal dangles, charm and clasp ring. Close jump ring.
