Sometimes I discover that I have a lot of loose beads and findings that are either leftovers from a previous project or have not found their way into a new creation. That’s when I’m inspired to make a nonchalant, asymmetrical, free-for-all piece to put these loose pieces to work. And this bracelet is what happened just now.
Let me inspire you to make one for yourself.
Start by gathering assorted beads. Depending on how thick you want your multi-strand bracelet to be, prepare several feet of stringing material (I used brown waxed cord on this one). Decide what findings you will use to hold the cord pieces together (I used round cord end caps). Choose your clasp (I used a lobster clasp).
Cut the cord into your desired length. Remember to allow for the total length of the clasp which includes the cord end caps and the clasp assembly. Bring the cord ends together with a rubber band and glue them onto one cord end cap.
String your assorted beads randomly.
Measure the length of the bracelet, trim the cords, glue onto the end cap, and attach the clasp.
And there’s your lovely, nonchalant, multi-strand assorted beads bracelet for any occasion.
