Project Instructions

  • 1
    Instructions are for a seven inch bracelet. Add more beads if longer size is needed.
  • 2
    Attach jump rings to both sides of the dragonfly. Tie a knot with the ribbon on one of the jump rings. Use a flat head pin and slide on one green faceted bead. Make a simple loop or a wrapped loop and trim the excess wire. Attach this bead to the jump ring on the other side of the dragonfly.
  • 3
    To make one side of the bracelet, cut the flat part off of 3 head pins and thread them through three green faceted beads. Make a simple loop on each end being sure to connect them to each other as you go.
  • 4
    When all three beads are together as a strand, connect one end to the jump ring on the dragonfly. Add a jump ring and a toggle finding to the other end of the strand.
  • 5
    Repeat steps three and four to create the other side of the bracelet.
