Blossom 'Summer Flora' Bracelets

Step 1

Ribbon Wrapped Bangle

Add a dab of Fevi Kwik glue onto the bangle base and attach the end of the ribbon to it. Hold in place for a minute, until dry. Continue to wrap the ribbon around the bangle until the bangle base is completely covered.You can continue to overlap the ribbon to make your bangle as thick as you like.

Trim ribbon and secure tightly using Fevi Kwik.

Step 2

Elastic Bead Bracelet

Thread on the desired amount of beads onto elastic (approx. 30). Trim elastic and tie securely using a double knot. You may wish to add a dab of glue to the knot for added security.

Step 3

Braided Swarovski Bracelet

1.  Cut 3 lengths of cord measuring 30cm each. Tie a knot close to the top. You may wish to attach this to a surface using a piece of cellotape. Begin to plait the cord until you reach the end. Knot again.

2.  Add a dab of Fevi Kwik onto the two bottom ends of your bracelet. Wait until dry and cut into a point. Slot into the cord ends. Attach the Swarovski connector using 2 jumprings and glue in your crystal. Repeat the ‘glue and point’ process on the other ends and attach the sterling silver cord ends with lobster.

3. Attach a jumpring onto one foldover to create the clasp. Attach a jumpring and a lobster clasp to the other end.
