I'm not a fan of stretch bracelets, so I made my version using a clasp.
If you prefer the stretch kind, making this will be even faster!
DIY smiley face and pearl bracelet // supplies:
Yellow Smiley Face Glass Beads 6mm
Swarovski Elements Crystal Round Pearl Beads, 5mm, White (this is what I had, although the 6mm pearl beads would have worked better)
Bead Crimper Crimp Tool Pliers
Crimp Tube Beads 2x2mm
Toggle Clasp, 9mm, Silver
Nylon Fishing Line (make sure that once used doubled, will still pass through the beads)
In case you want to do the stretch bracelet, all you need is some Elastic Floss 0.8mm
DIY smiley face and pearl bracelet // tutorial:
|string the smiley face and pearls, in equal amount, |
enough to go tightly on your wrist
|string a tube crimp bead and one part of the clasp onto one end|
|make a loop around the eye of the clasp, and pass the|
nylon line through the tube crimp bead and few beads too (to hide the tail)
|use the pliers to crimp the tube bead, and cut the excess nylon line|
|repeat on the other side!|
keep in touch!
