beachy multi-strand bracelet

Choose seaside animal-themed metal beads, then pair them with beautiful blue and green matte beads to make this Beachy Multi-Strand Bracelet.
Step 1

First, cut a 10" [25.4 cm] length of transite cord for each bracelet strand.

Step 2

Now, string beads as desired.

Step 3

Thread one end of each beaded strand through a bright starfish, then tie to the loop on the round part of the toggle clasp. Tuck the ends inside the starfish and add a generous amount of glue to the knot.

Step 4

Tie the other end of the strands to the loop on the bar part of the toggle clasp. Tuck the ends inside the adjacent beads and add a generous amount of glue to the knot. Let dry.


Step 5

Make charms with some of the metal seaside animal beads and attach to the round part of the toggle clasp to hang from your bracelet.
TIP: To make the charms, slide a bead (or beads) onto a headpin. Bend the wire of the headpin in a 90° angle just above the bead. Grasp the headpin wire, about 3/8"-½" [0.3 cm-1.3 cm] from the bend, between the jaws of your round nose pliers. Rotate the pliers toward you, keeping a firm grip on the wire, until a small loop is formed. Trim excess wire.
