Project Instructions

  • 1
    Choose color of pony beads and stretch bands for the bracelet. Neon beads and White stretch bands were used for this project.
  • 2
    Push bands through the holes of 12-15 pony beads.
  • 3
    Working with 2 pegs on a loom or the 2-nail jig (see Fish Tail Loom Box instructions), twist the first band into a figure 8, then add two additional bands above the first (only twist the first band).
  • 4
    For the fish tail pattern, remove the bottom band from nails so it is resting on the other two bands. Add another band onto the nails on top of the two. Repeat until you have a total of 4 bands removed from the nails.
  • 5
    Note: The key to making a bracelet with beads is to evenly separate them each time with the same amount of loops.
  • 6
    Add on band that has the pony bead on it. Remove the bottom band as you normally would with the fish tail pattern; that band will lie on either side of the bead.
  • 7
    Work through an additional 2 bands and then add on the second pony bead with band. Repeat until it is the desired length. After adding on the last pony bead, continue with an additional 2 bands and add clasp.
