42383 Pink 8mm Rhinestone Bead (16pcs/pkg) – 1 package
47056 Silver Faceted Bead (40pcs/pkg) – 1 package
42410 7mm Silver Rhinestone Spacer (18pcs/pkg) – 1 package
Elastic Cord – 20in to 24in length
Small Binder Clip
Thread elastic onto beading needle and pull halfway through so elastic is doubled (by doubling elastic, bracelet will be stronger). Attach binder clip to the elastic ends to ensure your bead work won't slide off before completion.
Thread needle through a middle hole on the back of the rhinestone flower, moving needle from the middle of the flower, through the hole outward. Thread one silver faceted bead. Add one 8mm pink rhinestone bead, then one 7mm silver spacer bead. Continue adding beads, alternating 8mm pink with 7mm spacers, until bracelet is desired length. (For a 7in bracelet, we used 13 8mm pink beads. Add additional beads for a larger bracelet.) Add another silver faceted bead.
Next, thread needle through the opposite middle hole of the flower, moving needle from outside towards the middle of the flower. Snip elastic close to the eye of the needle and remove needle, holding onto the elastic ends. Carefully remove binder clip from the other end, holding onto the elastic ends. Securely tie the elastic ends together being careful not to tie too tightly. Tie ends several times and dot with glue if desired. Once dry, clip ends somewhat close to knot.
