Bubble Bracelet and Necklace Set

What you will need:

3 x VC108 - Value Craft Plastic Round Bead Mix 8mm-13mm Yellow 25g
1 x VCSBPP - Value Craft Seed Beads 3.6mm Purple 40g
1 x VCSTC - Value Craft Stretch Thread Clear 7m
Scissors

Let's get started:

Bracelet

1.  Using scissors cut a length of stretch thread 60cm long.  Fold in half.

2.  Lay a pencil across the stretch thread.  Form a loop around the pencil by threading the loose ends of the stretch thread through the folded end.  This will prevent the beads from sliding off.

3.  Begin by threading 1 of the small (8mm) yellow beads then a large (13mm) yellow bead followed by another small (8mm) yellow bead and a purple seed bead.

4.  Repeat this pattern 6 times.

5.  Carefully slip the loop off the pencil, holding both ends so as not to let the beads slip off.

6.  Tie the ends together, 3 knots should be enough, ensure it is pulled tight.

7.  Cut off excess thread and slide knot into a large bead to hide it.
