The simplest way to make a stretchy bracelet is to do a single strand of beads. Cut your cord about 9-10″. You will want it to be a little longer then the finished piece so that it is easy to work with. Then add your beads one at a time.
Next you will want to make a reef knot to tie the piece off – see below:
Finally add a drop of glue (see here for our Hypo Cement Glue) to the knot for a little added strength. Allow the glue to dry and cut the ends close to the knot and if possible slide a bead over the knot.
Like a boomerang I keep coming back to SRB because the range is great and the people are brilliant. The tutorials and free pattern downloads are a fab source of information and inspiration.

I cannot rate this company highly enough. If you have a query they will answer very quickly and they had a query about my order once and phoned me to explain the colour of the bead shown had not come out quite right and was I happy with the slight difference, how many companies would do that.
