Royal Kashmir Stretch Bracelet
For this 3-strand stretch bracelet we used a mix of our beautiful beads from India. The Colbalt Millifiori Beads add shine and substance while the Cobalt Frosted Teardrops provide additional interest. Aside from being such a splendid color, this is a fun piece that you can utilize in your everyday wardrobe. The finished length of this 3-strand bracelet is approximately 7 ½ inches.

Step 1. Cut 3 pieces of Opelon measuring approximately 11 inches each. Take 1 strand and clip a Bead Stopper on one end.
Step 2. String 20 Cobalt Millifiori Beads onto the Opelon followed by one end hole of the Spacer Bar.
Step 3. Remove Bead Stopper and tie the two ends of Opelon together to secure the strand. Trim any excess Opelon.
Step 4. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 twice with the two other strands of Opelon, stringing them through the other holes in the Spacer Bar.
Step 5. Thread a Cobalt Pony Bead onto a Head Pin followed by a Frosted Teardrop. Repeat 14 more times. Form a tight loop above the Frosted Teardrop on each Pin by bending the Head Pin 90 degrees with Flat Nose Pliers and curling into a loop with Round Nose Pliers. Do not close these loops completely; they will create the dangles for your bracelet.
Step 6. Take one beaded strand and count out 9 Millifiori Beads from the Spacer Bar. Loop one of your beaded Head Pins between Millifiori Beads 9 and 10 and close the loop tightly. Repeat three more times on this strand, looping a beaded Head Pin between Millifiori Beads 10 and 11, 11 and 12, and 12 and 13.
Step 7. Take your next strand and repeat this same process 5 times.
Step 8. Take your last strand and count out 7 Millifiori Beads. Attach your last five Beaded Head Pins as you did for the other two strands. Enjoy!
