  • Measure your wrist (I measured mine at 6½"). The number of beads you will need depends on your wrist size.
  • Typical measurements are: small 6-7½; medium 7½-8; large 8½-9.
  • Add 5 inches and cut elastic cord to length. Add a jump ring to the charm using chain nose & round nose pliers and thread the charm on the cord.
  • Place the charm in the center of the cord. Add your beads on one side of the charm until you reach 1 inch from end. Tape cord to keep beads from coming off.
