Watch our technique videos on the TierraCast Blog (look for Jump Rings and Cord Ends).

Tip: For optional crimping instead of gluing - use large crimping pliers or chain nose pliers to squeeze the cord end firmly on the recessed area until secure. 

Steps for one bracelet

  1. If using adhesive to secure cord ends, apply small drop of glue into one cord end. Insert one end of one piece of cord. Allow to dry. If crimping use chain nose or crimping pliers to crimp until secure.
  2. String 11 spacer beads onto cord. 
  3. Repeat Step 1 to secure second cord end. 
  4. Open one oval jump ring and attach to loop at one end of bracelet. Before closing attach loop of one lobster clasp. Close jump ring. 
  5. Repeat Step 4 at other end, adding closed round jump ring before closing oval jump ring.
