bicones,2 tube beads(light blue) & make the
pattern thats circled in red.
Then bring both ends of the cord together & slide on a leaf bead.
Separate the strands.Take 4 more tube beads,2 round faceted beads,2
pearls,and the two small round faceted beads & make the pattern thats circled in yellow
Bring the strands together & add a leaf
Step 4: Step 3: Make the Bracelet
Separate the strands again.With the rest of the beads,make the pattern
that's circled in green.
Slide the toggle clasp pieces on either strand of the
bracelet.Tie three overhand knots on each side(if you're using stretch cord, bring both strands together and tie three overhand knots).
Hide your knot under one of the beads.And that's it,your done!
